Employees are the people who know your business inside out, so why not ensure they are your best brand advocates?
Employees often feel over worked and undervalued which is only costing your business money. A survey reported by Forbes highlights that 66% of employees would quit, if they feel their work is underappreciated.
Employee retention is critical for a successful business, high rates of staff turnover is not only costly for organisations, it takes away from the day to day function's of the organisation. Research has shown the customers experience is often impacted negatively when employees change regularly.
Internally, employee morale is often lowered when staff turnover is high. A study has found 61% of employees in the UK feel disconnected from their immediate colleagues. Lack of personal relationships in the workplace makes working collectively on a project more difficult and time consuming.
Employees often feel unsatisfied in their day to day tasks as they don't feel their work is aligned to the wider organisations goals. 79% of millennials have said they would feel more loyalty for their employers if there was an increase in rewards in their workplace.

- Build personal connection's with employees and get to know the person behind the hard work.
