Employees who feel connected to and invested in their organizations are more likely to stick around, and good communication can play a key role in helping them feel that way. In this issue’s feature article, “It’s Time to Revolutionize Workplace Communication!” Mark Sawyier describes how to make sure that such communication both informs and engages employees.

Most organizations know full well just how expensive recruitment, hiring, and training can be and are always looking for new ways to reduce their turnover rates. In today’s low-unemployment job market, companies have to work harder than ever to keep their employees on board.

In “How to Improve the Employee Experience,” Stacey Kervin boils the issue down to one factor: manager involvement. Many policies are created at “the top,” but middle managers are the ones who work closely with employees and know them best. Therefore, she explains, “organizations that want to move the needle on their employee experience must figure out how to get managers to embrace the company’s vision and actively make positive contributions to the employee experience.”

Excessive employee stress can kill productivity and lead to more employee dissatisfaction. That’s one reason why Nichole Keltgen encourages companies to consider implementing financial wellness programs. In “Focus on Financial Wellness to Boost Productivity,” she points out that by helping people feel more secure (and less stressed) about their financial matters, such programs can “not only help boost productivity but can also help recruit and retain top talent.”

No matter how good a company’s employee experience is, it always has room for improvement. Sometimes all that’s needed is a small tweak; sometimes an overhaul is in order. At Advanced Resources we can help your organization figure out what it needs to do in order to decrease turnover—and increase productivity and competitiveness.
