Employee Engagement

Getting the purpose and the strategic goals of the organizations in line with the purpose and well-being of the employees is now a major aspect of the business, in particular for undertakings willing to be governed by ESG criteria. Employee engagement approaches ensure that the business activity is in line with best practices and that the success of undertakings is driven by their employees’ genuine commitment to the corporate purpose. These approaches bring several benefits, greater productivity, loyalty and talent retention high among them.
