In a tight talent market where employees have choices about where they commit their time and talent, variable pay is frequently used as a retention, recruitment, and motivation tool. PayScale’s 2018 Compensation Best Practices Report (CBPR) reveals that nearly three-quarters of organizations give some type of variable pay.
In response to ongoing rises in employee turnover, companies must take an evidence-based approach to understanding why employees leave and what the organization can do to improve both retention and engagement. Specific data and tools are necessary, and getting feedback from employees is a critical link to gaining strategic knowledge.

Keeping them onboard
Most organizations today are focusing more attention and resources on employees—particularly on retention, engagement, and branding. Retention, especially of key players and strong contributors, is substantially based on the level of engagement employees have, and that, in turn, is reflected in the employment brand.
We conducted a survey on retention, engagement, and branding in March, 2017. In this free summary, we will cover the results of the survey. Attendees will get answers to the following questions:
•Do you track employee retention/turnover?
•How do you define engagement?
•Do you measure engagement?
•What challenges do you encounter trying to improve engagement?
•Do you have a formal career-planning program?
Are you controlling wage and benefit costs or are they controlling you? Are you winning the battle for employee retention and engagement? There is a route to get you and your employees out from between the challenges of increasing financial burdens and improving employee wellness.
Training—it’s such an important factor in productivity, engagement, and retention, yet it’s not easy to manage. Who should be trained? On what? By what means? And always, how do you know that training “took”? Our Trends in Training Survey, sponsored by Adobe, sought to find answers to those questions and many others.
This report will highlight important training information on:
• Employee vs Manager Training
• Leadership and Supervisor Skills
• Employee Training Priorities
• Measuring Training Effectiveness
• And more!

In October and November 2016, Aptitude Research Partners surveyed 382 organizations on a wide variety of topics related to organizational culture. The Aptitude definition of culture is ‘the behaviors and norms that are elicited and reinforced by both the formal and informal processes of the organization.’
Questions about internal equity and external competitiveness are often the driving forces in discussions with employees about compensation. And with recent research from Aptitude Research Partners showing that compensation, and employees’ perceptions of their compensation, rank as the most influential factors in employee engagement and retention, your organization’s compensation philosophy is more important to your bottom line than ever before.
The findings of this research showed that organizations with a focused effort on pay equity were highly correlated to a culture of engagement, trust, and transparency that drives business results.
