The inescapable workforce shortage issue requires organizations to reinvent themselves. Increasingly, they are introducing initiatives to attract and retain employees.
The Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean Partners had a bold and original idea to offer a trip to New York City to some 100 employees on February 1-3, 2019.
Éric Dufour, Regional Vice-President stated: “We practise what we preach! We support organizations in deploying strategic human resource activities. We have to adapt as well and ensure that our employees have a high happiness and engagement index.”
The New York trip was the culmination of an ongoing improvement initiative involving employees during 2018.
Claudie Arcand-Bellemare, Tax Consultant said: “It was awesome. It’s a privilege to work for an employer of choice who gives us the opportunity to have exceptional experiences and strengthen the bonds with our colleagues. Everybody came back from the trip more motivated than ever.”
In addition to the reward, new measures were introduced recently to meet the needs of the new generations, such as flexible schedules, a new dress code and a new governance structure.
