Improving Employee Retention through an Employee Engagement Model

There is no key reason why an employee may leave a company. Even though you may be trying to increase employee retention through an employee engagement model, it can be slightly unclear which actions to take. When looking for a solution, your efficiency is based on a general understanding of the wants and needs of your employees.

You then sow the fruits of your toil and feel validated. That is what social entrepreneurship is all about, establishing business ethics and social responsibility. However, there is a slight angle to it that people tend to overlook. Social entrepreneurship has everything to do with finding problems in a given society and coming up with solutions for the said problem. That sounds easy, but it is deeper than it sounds.
