Inc Magazine says that seventy percent of employees today are disengaged and Forbes says that fifty percent of employees are either actively or passively looking for alternative employment. This equates to half a billion dollars lost in productivity each year in the United States alone.
 
Every employee you lose is costing you $100,000 or more to replace
 
Businesses today assume that people employees leaving is just a Millennial mentality issue, but this could not be farther from the truth. People leave because they do not feel listened to, understood or valued.

The 5 Questions You Need To Ask In Your Employee Survey


If you are doing any kind of employee survey, these are the critical questions you need to ask. More importantly, these are the target scores you should be aiming for.

What is the ROI from employee engagement?


We often hear from new HR managers who are enthusiastic about the opportunity to implement employee engagement survey programs in their organizations but have a hard time convincing senior management of the value they can bring vs. the cost of conducting surveys and doing the necessary follow-up to bring about change.
