Employee engagement does not come by accident. It requires a carefully executed communications program that underpins a transparent company culture building trust and sparking innovation.
Figuring out how to keep good staff is a high priority for most businesses and as we all know, it costs less to keep existing staff than it does to hire a new one and train them.
There is a measurable relationship between employee engagement, retention and business performance and we all know happy, informed employees ensure that your business is achieving its business goals.
There are many things that a SMB can do to increase the rate of employee retention through providing a framework that is culture focused and flexible including;
