It’s all about balance

One of the key takeaways from this insightful conversation is that there are three major groups involved in employee engagement, and when you have the right balance between them, that’s when the magic happens and you’re able to achieve the performance momentum you strive for. When the executive team, HR, and frontline managers all contribute in an effective way that complements the other, employee satisfaction can increase, and turnover can decrease. It takes a shared vision, great energy, strategic initiatives, and of course the right tools to get things right and to keep things moving!
