Guest:

Steve Gilliland, motivational speaker and author of Enjoy the Ride

According to a recent study, disengagement among employees nationwide carries a price tag worthy of sticker-shock status: between $450 billion and $550 billion every year. And with 90% of executives reporting that retaining new hires is a difficult issue for their organization, inspiring dedicated employees has never been more important.

In this HR Break Room conversation, motivational speaker Steve Gilliland joins the podcast to discuss:

  • why it’s so critical to attract and recruit the right talent for your workforce
  • the importance of communicating your organization’s purpose to your employees
  • how to engage employees with technology that best suits your business
