Becoming an Employer of Choice doesn’t need to be overwhelming, expensive or intimidating, especially for companies that heed these tips:
ASK EMPLOYEES WHAT THEY REALLY WANT
Being an employer of choice means demonstrating – with words and actions – that your organization is a great place to work and you genuinely care about (and value) your employees. Talented employees – in this current work environment – have their choice of employers, and they will undoubtedly favor employers that have created an exceptional work experience, complete with the perks they want. So, go beyond the “ordinary” and offer your employees and prospects something “extraordinary” as an Employer of Choice.
Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person -
not just an employee - are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled.
Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.
