A real-world look at digital transformation.

Retain Employees by Fostering a Culture of Excellence

By David Barrick | October 16, 2018

According to a Gallup poll, only 33% of U.S. employees are engaged at work, and 51% are actively looking for a new job or watching for openings at any given time. How do you retain your hard-fought and hard-won employees and keep them happy?

Well beyond onboarding, companies must foster diversity, equality, development, and inclusion. A responsive digital workplace lets HR leaders create cohesive recruiting and hiring strategies, robust onboarding programs, and detailed talent success plans. Employee engagement is strongly connected to productivity, profitability, and customer experience. If employees know their work directly influences the success of the company, they feel more engaged. HR leaders can encourage engagement by cultivating success and empowering employees to take charge of their own career paths.

But far beyond competitive benefits, small perks, or employee contests, lies programs that cultivate success for employees.

Once you onboard new hires, offer ongoing opportunities for growth with digitally connected competency and skills programs. Imagine what your employees could achieve with access to:

  • Constructive Performance Coaching
  • Mentorship Programs
  • Leadership Development Opportunities

Empower Employees 

What if you could give every one of your employees the power to take charge of their professional future? With access to on-demand learning resources and collaborative tools, employees can follow their own personalized career trajectories. This allows them to make insight-driven decisions and helps ensure that they will contribute to sustainable business growth. In addition to employee input, machine learning can provide real-time performance indicators and quickly identify both at-risk employees and future leaders by quickly connecting the dots between employee behaviors and communication patterns.

Connecting the world’s leading professional cloud with the world’s leading professional network allows HR leaders to build a culture of empowerment that helps foster diversity, equality, and inclusion. Connected HR translates to actionable insights for an aligned, effective, and engaging talent experience. Align talent to business strategy, business environment, and operational excellence and create a positive talent experience from acquisition through onboarding, performance, and career development.

4 Steps to Building a Culture of Empowerment 
  1. Analyze at-risk employees and future leaders
  2. Understand how new hires align with strategic business goals
  3. Cultivate success through continuous personalized learning and professional development
  4. Empower employees to make insight-driven decisions
