How To Keep Your Best Employees Happy

By Carrie Kolar Thu, Jul 16,2015 @ AM

Common wisdom states “a penny saved is a penny earned.” That concept goes double for recruitment – a good employee who stays not only does the work they were hired for, they keep their employer from having the extra expense and trouble of hiring someone to replace them. Keeping your good employees is one of the best recruiting moves a business can make. Determining the best way to keep them, however, is a completely difference challenge.  In this week’s Roundup, we take a look at how to keep your best employees happy by developing a culture of employee engagement.

Recruiting Costs, Employee Retention and Other RPO News

By Allison Reilly Thu, Jun 12,2014 @ AM

When companies hear the words "recruiting costs", one idea that comes to mind is "cost-per-hire." Cost-per-hire isn't the best metric to use to measure your recruiting costs, and it certainly shouldn't be the only metric. Employers also need to consider the costs of the staff and resources needed to keep the human resources department running. They also need to consider the costs of losing employees or of overworking employees. This week's RPO news roundup covers these topics so employers have a more comprehensive idea regarding the concept of "recruiting costs."

Employee Engagement, RPO Failure, and Other Recruiting News

By Allison Reilly Fri, May 30,2014 @ PM

Companies with engaged employees outperform those without engaged employees by more than 200 percent! The three biggest reasons why employees aren't engaged include a lack of belief in senior leadership, a lack of pride in their employer and a dissatisfaction with their direct manager. Improving employee engagement will require improving the relationship between employees and their direct supervisors as well as the relationship between employees and their employer. Accomplishing that requires a small change in thinking in what employees want.

When Sustainable Employee Engagement Isn't Achieved (Part 2 of 2)

By Allison Reilly Tue, May 27,2014 @ PM

In the first part of this series, we discussed the importance of a sustainable workforce and how a sustainable workforce is different from traditional employee engagement. Essentially, traditional employee engagement isn't enough for the workplace of 2014. The wants and needs of employees are different today than they were 20 or 30 years ago. They're more stressed out and under more pressure than before, and they're also much more worried about job and financial security. In the second part of this series, we're going to cover what employers need to do to achieve sustainable employee engagement and the consequences of not having a sustainable workforce.
