    Employee Retention

    Losing your best employees?

    If you learned your best employees had one foot out the door, what would you do? Would you try to save them or assume it was simply too late? The reality – once you learn of an employee’s dissatisfaction, it’s already too late. Something is missing. Even the highly motivated, most positive, and largest contributors, will suffer in silence and look elsewhere for career satisfaction.

    Avoiding Employee Burnout

    Employee Burnout

    Olympic athletes that are citing burnout and mental health as the reason they’re dropping out of competitive events have been in the news.

    You Are Running Out of Time to Promote Employee Engagement!

    Posted by Brian Galonek 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.
