Bonus Return to the Office

 Bonus Return to the Office
Posted June 24th, 2014 @ 5:01am by By KTRH’s Dale Forbis

In the scramble to keep top employees from leaving, American companies are offering more bonuses and perks.  It's not always a "money thing."  Workplace culture expert Michael Rose says money is just one of the things that can motivate a valuable worker to decide not to go across the street to a competitor.

“But, I see that sometimes money's not the motivation, believe it or not.  It's working at a great office,” Rose says, “with great culture and good people and delivering a great service.”

Rose says many companies are realizing the benefit of creating a strong, positive work culture when it comes to keeping the best employees.

It’s not cost-effective to keep replacing personnel.

“It's incredibly expensive to go through employee turnover,” he says, “through the cost of identifying and recruiting the new employee, training that new person.”
