Since IQ PARTNERS is committed to helping our clients hire better, hire less, and retain more, we created a seven step guide to recruiter-proof your business using research and first-hand interviews with top companies like Google, Deloitte, LoyaltyOne, TD Bank, and Achievers.
Each month we’ll share a little from each of the seven steps. This month: why creating a corporate culture and sense of community is essential to employee longevity! Click here to download the guide now, or read on for a teaser from step six.
Employees enjoy working in an environment where they feel they’re among friends. People are working longer hours than in the past, and creating a culture in which employees enjoy coming to work is essential to retention. However, research studies have reported that as few as 8% of companies have policies or procedures to encourage fun at work.
A great way to capitalize on existing professional relationships is to utilize a referral program, wherein employees are paid a bonus for referring a successful hire. Referral programs not only solve a recruiting problem (as a general rule: good people know good people), but employee referrals also have a 45% retention rate after two years vs. 20% from job boards.
