happy employee Facing the challenges of employee retention and satisfaction? Workplace flexibility is one of the best ways to retain and reward your top employees.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management, one of the biggest challenges facing HR professionals in the next decade is retaining and rewarding the best employees. This challenge poses two specific questions for human resources:

  1. How do we keep our best employees as long as possible?
  2. How should we reward our top employees so they don’t start looking elsewhere?

There’s actually a simple formula to that helps answer both of these questions.
