The future of the workplace is being reinvented by emerging technologies and new ways of thinking. The future of workforce development must be equally innovative to meet the challenges of the 21st-century economy. ReConvene brings together workforce development, business, and government leaders to share insights, challenges, best practices, and strategies that are redefining the region’s workforce.
It’s time for the Future of Work to be an intentional and meaningful part of your organization. This series is designed to address both strategic and tactical decisions and priorities.
Investing in the Employee Experience
The employee experience is the cornerstone of any successful company. The problem remains that few business owners have the time, resources, or expertise to tackle it. There’s no escaping the fact that employee experience is critical.
Today’s employees are no longer satisfied with clocking in and out and receiving a paycheck. Losing an employee can cost about six to nine months of salary, and those indirect costs don’t include lost productivity. So how can you motivate employees so that they feel satisfied and grow in accordance with company and personal goals?
Development plays a major role in employee satisfaction, and its absence is a major contributing factor to employees’ leaving their employers. In this fireside chat, Christine Abrams, President & CEO of Commonwealth Corporation, and Kristin Carlson, President of Peerless Precision, Inc. will discuss their efforts to prioritize the employee experience and discuss the next steps for your business.
