According to Forbes, 2018 is the year of the “employee experience.” Since there has been such a focus on employee engagement, employee loyalty and employee retention over the last few years, adding another term into the employee/employer relationship cycle can be confusing.
Employee Engagement has been an ongoing challenge for Human Resources professionals and Company Leaders. But it’s a new year, so the time is right to make employee engagement a priority for your organization.
