Elevating Employee Engagement: Financial Training for a Happier, More Productive Workforce

Every business knows that happy and engaged employees make everything run smoother. Thousands of studies have established the point most of us already know intuitively: simply put, when employees feel a real connection to their job, they work harder and stick around longer. As a business owner, you want that because it means less turnover—bypassing the time and money costs of onboarding new hires—and more productivity from your team.

Just having the same team in place for as long as possible is, in itself, an asset. The more your employees work together, the more they know each other's strengths and weaknesses. It's easier for them to collaborate well. Also, feeling stable and having a steady routine can really lift spirits at work. All businesses go through ups and downs, but seeing the same friendly faces every day can make a big difference in how employees weather the storm.
 
Given how important it is, employee engagement is a hot topic in the business world. In this article, we'll be taking a closer look at one of the many ways to shore up engagement among your employees you may not have considered before: financial training.

5 Reasons Why LinkedIn Will Revolutionize Recruiting Process

Enter LinkedIn: the world’s largest and most important business social platform thus far. And LinkedIn was launched in 2003, with what purpose? You guessed it - for recruiting the workforce.

So, let’s investigate what LinkedIn brings to the table, and which changes are happening as we speak that will make it even bigger.
