ABR HR Insights Magazine

Summer 2019

Today’s ever-shifting employment and market landscapes can sometimes make it difficult to know the best ways to hire and manage employees. New management trends arise every day: some are a flash in the pan, some stick around for a while, and some disappear but return when business conditions change. In every issue of our HR Insights Magazine, industry thought leaders offer their insights on strategies on a diverse array of topics: developing strong leadership, implementing policies and practices to improve productivity and branding, and making better hires, to name just a few.

Engagement takes center stage in this issue of ABR HR Insights Magazine. It influences hiring, retention, productivity, and pretty much anything else related to a company function. In short, it’s critical to the well-being of any organization. In our feature article – How to Motivate Employees: Look Beyond Money – Valerie M. Grubb writes about the importance of engagement but says that the way to cultivate it is not by opening the wallet.

Says Grubb, “Money can buy a lot of things, but it can’t buy everything. And in the workplace, it can’t buy the attitudes and knowledge that drive employee engagement.”

Managers who want to improve engagement should show appreciation, provide opportunities, and engage in other non-monetary strategies. It’s no secret that when employees aren’t engaged, they don’t do their jobs well. And when they don’t do their jobs well, the entire organization suffers.

Don’t let this happen to you! Contact any ABR location today to see how we can help your company improve its employees’ engagement and any other issues that can affect staffing—and your organization’s success.
