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.

By Allison Reilly Thu, Sep 04,2014 @ AM

The number of employee referrals a company receives is a major indicator of employee morale. If employees are referring people to open positions within the organization, then it's likely that they like their jobs and like their employer. So, how does an organization encourage employee referrals without coming across as tacky or desperate for talent?

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.

Sustainable Workforce vs. Employee Engagement (Part 1 of 2)

By Allison Reilly Tue, May 20,2014 @ PM

Sustainable engagement is defined as "the optimal relationship between employers and workers," and has three components: discretionary effort, well being, and a supportive work environment. Sustainable engagement is different from traditional workforce engagement, where traditional engagement still leaves employees detached or disengaged with the organization. Sustainable engagement goes one step further by not only identifying what drives employees to be engaged, but also offers holistic solutions to improve engagement. Employee engagement doesn't have shortcuts, and can't be simplified with one-size-fits all steps.

Conceptualizing Employee Engagement

Employee engagement has been an increasingly important part of management theory over the past twenty years. There is enough talk about it, enough different ideas in the mix, and enough examples of both good and bad practice, that understanding of employee engagement has become increasingly vague. But clarity is needed when considering how to successfully apply any approach, and that is as true here as with any other aspect of management.
