In the fight to keep employees engaged and satisfied with where they work, employers have been pushed to consider everything from a permanent hybrid workplace and shorter workweeks to impactful DEI initiatives and financial wellness benefits. But is there a solution that already naturally occurs in the workplace?
Career mobility and skill development can be key to keeping a workforce engaged — and it’s not just a matter of virtual video training or checklists, but deep relationships with those already in the company, says Gracey Cantalupo, chief marketing officer at MentorcliQ, a company that facilitates mentorship programs for businesses across the U.S.
“It’s not just a quick cup of coffee, but employees developing relationships that keep them engaged,” she says. “If you’re engaged, you’re going to want to stay and grow with the company.”
