WHY SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT KEEPING WORKERS HAPPY IN A TIME OF RISING UNEMPLOYMENT?

Because you can't afford not to. In an eye-opening survey of 10,000 employers in 43 states, the Best Places to Work are not only the most engaging work environments for employees—they are also the most efficient, productive, and successful. Even in the toughest economic times.

WHAT SEPARATES THE "BEST" FROM THE REST?

These companies understand and utilize the six "universal drivers" of employee engagement:

  1. Caring, Competent, and Engaging Senior Leaders
  2. Effective Managers Who Keep Employees Aligned and Engaged
  3. Effective Teamwork at All Levels
  4. Job Enrichment and Professional Growth
  5. Valuing Employee Contributions
  6. Concern for Employee Well-Being

HOW CAN I GET THE "BEST" FROM MY EMPLOYEES, MY COMPANY, AND MYSELF?

Simple. Re-engage them.

"Best places to work" lists might seem like vestiges of another, more prosperous age. Do employers still have to worry about employee satisfaction in hard economic times? Yes, they do, say human resources experts Leigh Branham and Mark Hirschfeld. They argue that, since the economic meltdown of 2008, keeping your employees engaged is more important than ever. Using vivid real-world examples, employees' comments and compelling data, Branham and Hirschfeld demonstrate how your company can join the list of elite employers. In fact, they may provide a bit too much information; their book features so many lists of possible tactics that readers may feel overwhelmed at times. Still, getAbstract is confident that the book provides solid information for senior managers and HR professionals. In short, Branham and Hirschfeld ably demonstrate how, when times get tough, the best keep going.
