Employee Experience: The 4 Key Components of an Onboarding Strategy

Anyone who has ever held a job has had an “employee experience.”  But what is employee experience?  Its definition is really in the eye of the beholder as each employee experiences events differently.  Thinking about it in another way, it’s a series of experiences that happen during the employee life cycle.  Check out this article to learn the 4 key components to keep in mind when creating an onboarding strategy. 

Best Practices for Employee Engagement

The concept of job satisfaction was popularized in the seventies and was the first real way for businesses to directly influence performance. In the past three decades, HR professionals have started to realize that satisfaction isn’t enough for people to unlock their potential value to an organization. As a result, businesses have started to work on improving employee engagement because of the increasing understanding that deeper employee engagement leads to higher productivity and improves the overall lifetime value of their people. Employee engagement has since become the industry benchmark for how committed people are to their jobs.To learn the four key variables of measuring employee engagement, download this article.
