One of the biggest roadblocks to successful employee retention, talent attraction, and acquisition, is a poor employee experience. One bad experience can haunt your workforce, making it critical to maintain a positive work experience.
Managers and business owners should practice these tips to help ensure that employees have a pleasant experience.
Ensure a Smooth and Pleasant Onboarding for New Hires
51% of employees say they've been tempted to leave a new job due to a negative onboarding experience.
Businesses should consider eliminating if they haven't already done so, outdated onboarding methods, and embrace modern employee onboarding technology.
Businesses looking to create a better onboarding experience for new hires should start by contacting an HR provider today.
Don't Underestimate the Importance of Employee Wellness
65% of employees think employers should offer a comprehensive wellness program for physical, mental, and financial well-being.
Hiring a Chief Wellness Officer to develop and manage a complete wellness program can lead to better engagement and reduce employee burnout.
Alternatively, managers may want to seek help from an HR provider for HR consulting and services.
Make Personal Growth of Employees a Priority
55% of employees want their employer to provide more educational opportunities in order to promote their own personal growth as a worker.
Managers and businesses should look for ways to develop talent internally, using technology that offers self-paced micro-learning sessions, and role-specific training.
This is something that may be accomplished with a Learning Management System (LMS).
Think Out-of-the-Box When It Comes to Employee Benefits
61% of employees are either extremely likely or probable to take advantage of charity donations deducted straight from their paycheck.
While not an overtly common practice, workers tend to look favorably at companies that offer social-good programs as part of their benefits packages.
Companies considering adding such a component to their benefits package may want to consult an HR and payroll provider first on how such a benefit might work.
Find a Unified Platform for HR & Payroll Processes
29% of employees say that the technology that they are missing the most is a single platform that can perform all standard work functions, such as standard HR and payroll-related tasks.
Businesses should look to replace outdated, disconnected technology, or in some cases, even manual processes, with a unified human capital management (HCM) system, effectively eliminating the need for multiple logins and redundant data entry.
