Recent research suggests the human resources (HR) department’s increasing impact on an organization’s bottom line and its ultimate success. Basically, your organization’s success or failure will depend on how it manages its people and job candidates during the stages of their life cycles with your organization.
Generally speaking, engagement is how much your employees are active within their jobs. An engaged employee enjoys their job, fits well within its culture, and actively tries to improve his or her organization.
While the candidate experience is important in the recruiting process, how you treat your workers once the “honeymoon phase” wears off is of vital importance. Many companies are focusing on the employee experience to help retain top talent, but what does this entail?
In a previous post, we opened up the idea of talent pool engagement—keeping candidates and potential candidates engaged and informed about the organization before they’re even being considered for a role.

It’s a candidate-driven market, which means jobseekers are in the driver’s seat and demanding more than just a higher salary. Jobseekers expect their employer to provide personal fulfillment and meaning. If your employees do not feel supported, aren’t learning new skills for the future, or are disengaged with their work, they will seek employment elsewhere.
Employers go to great lengths to attract employees, especially in a strong job market, where employees often have greater bargaining power. One way employers seek to attract new talent is through higher wages.
A workplace that supports employee engagement is a healthy, positive one. Unfortunately, it seems such working environments are uncommon. Surveys indicate that approximately 87% of workers throughout the globe are not engaged with their jobs.
Turnover is always a hot topic. How can it be reduced? How can you keep top employees from leaving? What makes a good employee want to leave your organization? How can you know if someone is considering quitting?
