The Great Resignation: Part 3
Newbie or not newbie – it’s all about the connection.

We have an opportunity to make 2022 the year of the renewed employee experience, and a chance to flip “the great resignation” into the “greatest year of retention”. Employers have a chance to start the employee experience off on the right foot – with exceptional onboarding, fostering a sense of belonging from day one.

This month, we’ll teach you the basics of onboarding new hires. Investing in connections on the front-end with a new hire will pay the proverbial “dividends” on the back end, creating and maintaining a thriving culture of continuous employee engagement.

Here are three considerations for effectively onboarding new employees!

The Great Resignation: Part 2
Considerations for creating your total rewards strategy to recognize & reward employees.

Last month we talked about a few ways companies can avoid being victims of “the big quit,” and we highlighted the importance of creating regular recognition experiences as part of a total rewards strategy. In this issue, we want to talk about a few considerations for creating a total rewards strategy (and how cash is a short-term solution).

We’ll share how “the big quit” may actually be an employee reshuffling, and how it gives us an opportunity to alter our most valuable employees’ experiences to retain them. We’re being given a chance to learn how to invest in our culture with engagement strategies, offering the recognition and connections that your employees seek!

Here are a few considerations for what you can do to find balance for your total rewards strategy!

The Great Resignation: Part 1
Looking at work/life through the lens of the employee experience.

Anthony Klotz, a Texas A&M professor who came up with the phrase “the great resignation” back in May of 2021, believes that during the pandemic, people “re-imagined what normal could look like,” without commutes, with more family time, better pace, and less pressure. Comments like “Life is too short to be unhappy for five days a week in exchange for two days of freedom” have been posted; and hashtags, memes, and TikToks have emerged around “quit my job.”

So what can you do to avoid a great resignation of your own? What kind of experiences can you create for your teammates to ensure the benefits of your workplace outweigh the option to resign?

Now is the most wonderful time of the year… to show appreciation!

Ahhh, the end of the year – Q4, the home sprint, time to take a breath. There’s a natural cheer in the air and uplifted spirits with feelings of progress. For many employees, the end of the year is synonymous with holidays and a time for reflection, giving, and sharing thanks across all areas of their lives – at home and at work. For others, the holidays may be difficult; employees may feel added pressure to close sales, wrap up inventories, use budgets, and some may be faced with the general anxiety that the holiday season may bring.

In either case, now is the perfect time to pause and share appreciation with your teammates. The closing of the year gives us the opportunity to celebrate accomplishments, recognize individual and team successes, offer special thanks, and inspire motivation for the new year.

Check out some tips for ensuring your employees know they are valued, showing them you care and inspiring them for an amazing 2022!
