I was reading through a number of articles and there were a couple of interesting facts that caught my eye in this blog.
The one that caused me to sit up was this one...
“Replacing an employee costs on average around £30,000 and it takes up to 28 weeks to get them up to speed.”
As an organisation it is critical to retain employees and top talent. Especially in these uncertain "Brexit" times. So engagement to understand what your work force wants and interacting with them goes a long way.
We know work life balance plays an important part to an employees well being, benefiting them on a number of levels. The benefits to an employer are tangibly linked to this as well. This article really brings to life these topics. A great read.
Oh and my advice. Engage, understand and most importantly act on what you find.
How important is work-life balance? Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is not only important for health and relationships, but it can also improve your employee’s productivity, and ultimately performance. Put simply, if your people don’t view work as a chore, then they will work harder, make fewer mistakes and are more likely to become advocates for your brand.
