75% of healthcare spending is attributable to preventable, behavior-related illnesses
Fresh Fruit, Coffee, Candy, & All the Snacks Your Employees Could Want!
Guernsey offers a full, next-day delivery breakroom program to customers—everything from bean-to-cup coffee to Diet Coke to infinity and beyond. Healthy snacks, not-so-healthy snacks, and even breakfast may mean more than you think.
Consider it this way:
Good people are hard to find, and even harder to keep. If recruiting and retention aren’t enough pressure, 75% of healthcare spending is attributable to preventable, behavior-related illnesses, per the Society for Human Resources Management. That’s a lot of lost time and money for both employees and employers. Whether or not you have a full HR department, you’re always competing for talent against someone with a similar or better benefit structure and brand.
The scale varies but the problems remain for us all: how can we find the best employees and, once we do, how do we keep them? We sat down with our HR Manager, Kim Strickland, to get her take on employee recruitment and retention.
"I think my big thing in HR is I want to make a difference,” Kim says. She sees the workplace as a garden where people can grow and blossom in their careers. With the amount of time employees spend in the office, she tells us, it’s crazy for them to be unhappy. “I want people to love to come to work," she says, echoing SHRM’s 2012 ToolKit, "Managing for Employee Retention.”
"As important as it is to understand the reasons that drive employees to leave an organization, it is just as important to understand why valuable employees stay. Some recent studies have suggested that employees become embedded in their jobs and their communities. As they participate in their professional and community life, they develop a web of connections and relationships, both on and off the job. Leaving a job would require severing or rearranging these social and value networks. Thus, the more embedded employees are in an organization, the more likely they are to stay."
