Jeff’s Employee Retention Blog, Tips and Advice

Remote Work Forever…NO WAY

Everyone dreamed of working remotely so they didn’t have to commute, would not have to dress up to go to the office, would be more productive because of fewer meetings etc. etc. etc.  Now, as more organizations contemplate having employees become 100% remote, many...

Beef Up Your EAP…NOW

Frankly, this employee recruitment expert is worried.   In forty-some years of doing this, I’ve never seen people more demoralized, more disengaged, and less fired up about work as I have since people stood on the assembly line punching out widgets in the 70’s. ...
