One of the fastest growing trends in employee enticement are the various perks being offered to get employees to walk through the door. Most employers offer a mix of standard benefits such as competitive wages, medical and dental insurance, tuition reimbursement, and 401K. are offering perks such as zen rooms, onsite yoga sessions, unlimited PTO, gourmet coffee bars, free peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pool tables, foosball tables, hoverboards (I would love to see this organization’s safety records), leather couches in the breakrooms, gas firepits, open mics in the breakrooms for Ted Talk style lunches, and 100% paid maternity/paternity leave for six weeks including a year supply of diapers (I do have to admit, that is a very cool perk). Each of these organizations tout these benefits as part of their culture. However, this begs the question, why is there still a struggle to find and keep good talent? The number one reason for employee turnover, regardless of the industry, is poor leadership. Rich and Maikel will be discussing why Executive Coaching should be the first item on the list for recruiting and retention.
