These days, employees have more choices than ever. Rising wages, creative new benefits, and the rise of remote work, are making employers think differently about how they attract and retain employees. Addressing these realities requires thinking and acting differently.
What Is an Employer of Choice?
An employer of choice is one that stands out among its peers in the marketplace. They stand out as a highly desirable place to work because of their culture and the way they support their employees. Employers of choice see higher numbers of quality applicants, longer-tenure, less turnover, higher-levels of performance, and a more engaged workforce.
How We Can Help
Becoming an employer of choice is not the same process for every organization. Every industry faces different challenges and each organization is unique. Frontline Training Solutions can help you with your next step in this journey through one of our human resources or leadership development training programs or we can help you create you build your own customized solution from the ground up. Below are some of the top ways we partner with organizations as they begin this journey.
Increase Employee Engagement with Strong Leaders
The direct relationship between an employee and their supervisor is the most important factor in employee retention and engagement. By investing in the development of your leaders, you’re investing in talent attraction, employee engagement, and employee retention.
Organizational Brand Promise & Reputation
Some organizations already have a great culture and support their employees in unique and engaging ways. But potential employees do not know about them. We can help you define your brand promise and develop effective marketing campaigns to tell your story.
Employees are increasingly looking for organizations that will support their professional aspirations. Such development comes through offering training programs, coaching, and unique job experiences. Companies can also differentiate through investment in formal education, certifications, and licenses. We can help you design and implement these programs as a component of your overall strategy.
Scheduling Flexibility & Remote Work
For those jobs that allow it, designing an approach that provides employees with flexibility is increasingly necessary. But designing these programs and implementing them effectively requires careful attention and support. Because of our unique connection to both the workforce and the workplace, we are able to provide this support.
Compensation & Benefits Programs
The last few years have seen quite a few changes in the compensation and benefits companies offer their employees. Staying up-to-date on these trends and understanding what can make a difference in your organization is an important part of the employer-of-choice equation.
