  • Insights into Building Employee Loyalty

    Secrets to Building Employee LoyaltyBuilding employee loyalty is worth the time and effort

    Loyalty in the workplace looks different now than it did a generation ago.  Staying at one job with one employer for your entire working life and retiring with a gold watch is far from today’s norm. While employees are more apt to change jobs after just a few years, creating a workplace where there is mutual respect and trust can bring out the best in all of your employees – from Millennial to Baby Boomers.  Even if an employee doesn’t spend many years working for you, maximizing the relationship you have with them through engagement, appreciation and support is paramount to the success of your business.

  • Workplace “Thank Yous” Are Important, Even Belated

    Workplace "Thank You's" are an easy way to help employees feel valued and appreciated.Conventional wisdom suggests sharing workplace “Thank You’s” as close to possible to the act that you are thanking colleagues for. But that’s not always possible, especially in a busy workplace. Another approach is to use a traditional holiday like Thanksgiving, a year-end celebration or an annual event such as National Thank You Month in January as a prescribed time and opportunity to show gratitude to your hard-working team.

    Perhaps your New Year’s resolution at work (and at home) was to make sure those around you feel appreciated. Maybe you had every intention of conveying that gratitude back during National Thank You month. But things got hectic and suddenly it’s spring. It would be a mistake let the embarrassment over the amount of time that has passed be the reason you don’t thank or acknowledge someone. Well done, that gratitude is still meaningful and important to recipients.

  • 9 Ways to Kickstart Employee Wellness Goals

    Employee wellness goals are easy to achieve by supporting healthy shopping and eating habits.

    Spring is here, and World Health Day is April 7 — two good reasons to set employee wellness goals this month to support and engage healthier habits in your workplace!

    Most employees aren’t even aware of the wellness benefits their company offers. According to the Transamerica Center for Health Studies 2017 Consumer and Employer surveys, 62 percent of employers say they provide employee wellness programs — yet only 40 percent of employees say their organizations offer them.

    “The survey isn’t the first source to show a disconnect between how employers and workers view their wellness programs,” HR Dive noted. A 2017 Willis Towers Watson survey showed 81 percent of employers said their wellness programs were meeting workers’ needs, but 61 percent of employees disagreed.

    “There’s clearly a disconnect between employers and workers over the effects of wellness programs — a real problem in a time when wellness programs can vary so widely,” according to HR Dive.

    You could be offering the best medical benefits and wellness perks in your industry, but if no one even knows about them, it’s a major missed opportunity at employee engagement and recognition.

    Better communication, more effective tools and targeted rewards are key to making sure employees are not only aware of your workplace wellness program but eager to participate in it. Some companies, in particular hospitals, are even adding a chief wellness officer position to their C-suite to elevate the discussion of employee wellness to the executives’ table. Companies appointing this new position “anticipate not only happier employees but also improved patient experience and outcomes,” according to HR Dive.

    If your company is looking to boost its wellness programming, there’s no better time to start than now. Spring brings warmer temps for outdoor fitness activities and more in-season options for healthy eating initiatives.

    Plus, several upcoming observances, like World Heath Day on April 7 and Employee Health & Fitness Month in May, are just the boost your workplace may need to rejuvenate employee wellness goals.
