Higher Pay May Not Be the Best Way to Keep Your Workforce Intact and Engaged

Higher Pay May Not Be the Best Way to Keep Your Workforce Intact and Engaged

Employee retention and engagement are on the minds of more than the human resources department these days. The entire C-suite is taking notice as leaders realize the impact of high turnover on the overall financial performance of the organization. Although money is commonly believed to be a strong motivator, “most engagement research shows that learning opportunities, professional development, and career progression are among the top drivers of employee satisfaction.”

Beverly Kaye, founder of Career Systems International, agrees that investing in learning and development to help employees advance their careers can be one of the most effective tools an organization has for increasing both retention and engagement. “Without career development, employees won’t see a place for themselves in the future of the organization—and therefore, they won’t engage with the organization.”

While the importance of learning is rising, organizations’ confidence that they are doing enough in this area is dropping. CCWA works with hundreds of employers every year to:

  • Identify the learning needs that impact business processes
  • Develop solutions that fit a company’s needs and culture, and
  • Deliver training or consulting services that provide a return on investment

CCWA can support the development of technical and professional skills as well as increasingly important soft skills such as communication and emotional intelligence. To learn more about how CCWA can support your employee retention and engagement efforts through learning, contact:
