What Makes an Employee Happy
Every company is looking for the best way to improve their employee retention rate. Some studies have shown that having to replace an employee costs the company around 6-months of the salary of the position extra, and not making the needed decision to fire and replace a person in a position costs the company around 1-year's worth of the salary. Are you setting up your employees to stick around and do a great job while they are working for your company?
