Nearly 60 percent of U.S. workers are hourly employees, does your organization know what makes them tick?
The majority of staff in the United States are hourly employees who have little to no control over their work schedules. The retail industry has an annual turnover of 80–100%. The cost of replacing hourly workers is up to 1/3 of their annual salary.
That’s why when the employee engagement is low, it’s vital for businesses to get staff enthusiastic about the organization and the role they play within in.
In 2013, Gen Y (those born after 1990) made up 25 percent of the American workforce. By 2025, this number will increase to 75 percent. To keep this growing group of employees happy, they say they want to schedule flexibility, shared values, immediate feedback, and a positive work environment.
