Employee Engagement | LTC Performance

In reviewing our “pay for performance” case studies we came to a startling discovery: while our clients have always received positive results from our total compensation initiatives and performance solutions, the most exciting ones have come after they have engaged us to teach their employees about THEIR business. Employees are hungry for this type of information. At their core, most are looking for an opportunity to make a difference, yet often can’t see a link between the work they are doing, the business’ purpose and key goals (most aren’t even aware of the company’s goals!). It’s been amazing to see how companies leap ahead of their competition when: they have the right people, select the right goals, and do the right things. This business essentials training compliments and adds value to a well-designed Total Rewards strategy. Some of our performance solutions and business essentials training services include:

  • Clarifying desired outcomes & learning objectives.
  • Reviewing pertinent financial information to provide a “big picture” understanding for employees.
  • Discussing the type of information that can be shared.
  • Determining class size and related logistics.
  • Ensuring clear communication.
  • Linking training to business goals.
  • Developing customized training modules.
  • Facilitating training sessions.
  • Providing tools for keeping the program (and the communication!) going after the completion of the first sessions.
