Spring is in the air, and with it comes a sense of newness: new growth, new approaches, and new perspectives. In our March/April issue of HR Insights, several industry experts present new insights on a topic that’s been a perennial favorite in HR circles over the past few years: employee engagement. Why go to all the trouble to improve employee engagement and retention? First, of course, there are clear benefits to your financial bottom line: lower turnover rates save your organization money. More generally speaking, happy and engaged employees improve all of a company’s metrics and strengthen the organization.
In this edition’s feature article, “Set Your Initiatives Up for Success,” Valerie Grubb offers strategies for successfully launching a change initiative at an organization. Things never stay the same forever, after all, so change is inevitable at some point. But companies need to realize that change can’t be effectively implemented unless they fully engage their employees in the endeavor.
As you read through this issue, we hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration and suggestions for ways to improve your organization’s staffing practices. We know that people lie at the heart of any successful business. We’d love to talk with you about how we can help you find and develop your company’s greatest assets.
