Build your performance culture

Building your company’s performance culture

Today’s marketplace is competitive. What ultimately counts is the bottom line and companies are constantly seeking ways to maintain a competitive edge. In doing so, a huge challenge they face is the ability to attract and retain high-performing employees.

Generally speaking, a lack of transparency and clarity around pay raises, career path and promotional opportunities are common reasons why employees leave a job. This is why compensation management aligned with a performance culture is critical to recruiting and retaining top talent. High-performing employees are attracted to companies that recognize the skills they bring to the table, offer a clear career path and succession planning, while also providing a benefits package that meets and satisfies their personal and financial needs. As a matter of fact, companies that have adopted an integrated approach to reward strategy, report higher employee engagement and have fewer problems in attracting and retaining these key employees, according to a study by Towers Watson.
