    You Are Running Out of Time to Promote Employee Engagement!

    Posted by brian on 08.17.2021


    If you’ve waited this long to create a “Total Rewards” program that recognizes and rewards your employees in order to keep them more engaged at work, it’s ALMOST too late!

    The effects of the pandemic have come at employers in waves, and some of the largest and most disruptive waves are still on their way. As Gallup points out in this article, employees these days have more options than ever and one of those options for many is simply to retire.

    Look around your organization and you’re likely to see the early effects of retirements (and turnover as a whole) and ask yourself, “How much does it cost the company every time we lose a valuable seasoned employee?”

    If you have never put a properly structured employee recognition/rewards program in place, you’ve lost the opportunity to blunt this first wave, but if you put one in place now you can at least stem the losses going forward and set your company on the right path for the future.
