Finding the right talent for your business is a tricky endeavour. There can be a lot of unseen costs to attracting, recruiting, screening and hiring new employees. This is why savvy companies will know this cost down to the penny, factoring in everything from posting a job online to the time invested in finding and vetting each candidate. However, bringing new people into your company is only the first step in building your rockstar team. Organizations also need to have a strategy to retain, grow and empower employees at every level - otherwise risk turnover rates and wasted investments.
The significance of employee engagement cannot be overstated, regardless of the size, value or make of a business. From day one of employment through to retirement or termination, it's paramount that your staff contribute positively towards the company’s progress and actively engage with their colleagues. It's not just enough to have a few excellent people; you need them all.
