Additionally, 63% consider remote work to be the most important factor when choosing their employer, even above salary. While remote work offers many benefits for organizations, such as access to talent and reduced overhead, there are challenges in keeping employees connected, engaged, and loyal. However, implementing unconventional strategies for employee engagement can help address these challenges and show employees that they are valued.
Employees have said loudly and clearly that they prefer to work remotely... even above salary!
One unconventional strategy for building engagement is taking employees on a company offsite retreat that focuses on relaxation, connection, and self-care. This not only allows for a deeper connection among employees, but also provides opportunities for personal and team development, teaching valuable soft skills. Engaged employees are more productive and less likely to leave, leading to greater organizational success rates.
A company offsite retreat with sessions focused on personal or team development not only offers opportunities for a deeper connection but also teaches your employees valuable soft skills... with a promotion.
