Take Action Now

Hiring, training, and turning over employees are all expensive endeavors for your company. Experience can prove to be an invaluable resource that you may not want to dismiss too often. As such, it may prove instrumental to your company’s success to learn what makes your workers tick. 

Think Outside The Box*

  • Total rewards are important, but money is not the only thing that attracts candidates and retains employees.
  • Turnover is costly. Make sure your existing employees know they are valued.
  • Focus on the total employee experience by providing personal and professional development and considering options for flexible work schedules.
  • Benefits are not one-size-fits-all. Employees have different needs. A la carte options are a way to help companies differentiate themselves, even by offering pet insurance.
  • Be clear on your business’s mission and culture.
  • Minimize the approval process with decision made by new hires. This will enhance trust.
  • Leverage your existing employees to share your story. Ask your existing employees to share why they like working for your company.
  • Share your employees’ stories in the recruitment process. Your existing employees are great advocates for your organization.
