A balancing act

With all the media reporting, you would think employee relations are at an all time low. Yet, over half of employees say they’re extremely satisfied with their job, 62% are satisfied with their manager and 78% say they’re treated with respect.

According to The Conference Board, “once workers are paid competitively, a strong workplace culture is the most important factor… Leaders gain the most by offering flexible, hybrid work arrangements, and emphasizing work experience and culture factors.” Advisors must balance health and welfare offerings with a thorough review of compensation, engagement and ancillary products supporting holistic wellbeing.
