Podcast episode 4: Sweetening the deal

For your employees

We know how much people are loving remote work – being able to spend more time with family/friends and being more autonomous with our schedules has given many people a new lease on life. So how should employers shift their rewards, recognition and engagement approaches to suit employees’ new expectations?

In this episode, Monica Watt, chief human resources officer of the ELMO Group, shares her secrets for making a business more attractive to existing and potential workers.

“If you don’t do anything, your competitors will take your talent. So you are better off starting and doing something right now when it comes to wellness as well as reward and recognition.” – Monica Watt, chief human resources officer of the ELMO Group

She also tells us why in a post-COVID market short on talent, holding on to your best people is more important than ever before.
