Employers need to really think through their side of the engagement equation so that their employees feel that they are valued and are making an impact
Toronto & Boston (PRWEB) June 3, 2009
Effective employee engagement is the key to combating the brain drain problem currently being faced by Google, according to I Love Rewards, a leading web-based rewards and recognition program provider for top North American employers.
Google's new algorithm that calculates which of their employees are most likely to quit has set off much debate and discussion around predicting employee behavior and the importance of retaining top performing employees. According to a May 19th story in the Wall Street Journal by Scott Morrison, "Current and former Googlers said the company is losing talent because some employees feel they can't make the same impact as the company matures."
With I Love Rewards' InSight Report™, companies are identifying top performers who demonstrate desired behaviors, and keeping them motivated by recognizing and rewarding their actions. This proactive approach helps drive employee morale and engagement from the start, so employees feel valued and stay productive.
"Employers need to really think through their side of the engagement equation so that their employees feel that they are valued and are making an impact," said Valerie Frederickson, CEO of Valerie Frederickson & Company, a leading HR consulting firm. "Especially now when so many companies have downsized, putting additional time constraints and stress on managers, having an easy-to-use online tool that prompts the correct actions could be a make-or-break situation, literally the lynchpin of the company's success."
