Employee engagement confusion still reigns (HR Magazine)
There’s no doubt there’s inconsistencies in what “employee engagement” means to different organizations. I like the phrase “employee experience” – as suggested by a speaker at the debate this piece mentions. Employee experience can be explained more like “customer experience” where you discuss how you want the employee to feel from start to finish working at your company.
When Recruiting Millennials, Don’t Forget About The Money (Procurement Leaders)
One of the key findings: Millennials, contrary to popular belief, are just as motivated by salary as everyone else. The finding confirms results from some other surveys, such as you’ll find here and here.
I don’t think Millennials are much more different from other generations. We still want to be paid a fair salary to cover our expenses. We do expect more from the companies that we work for but that’s because we have more career options than any time in the past.
That’s the round up for this week! Come back for more next week.
