Best HR blog post about compensation: 
What Salary Should You Pay to Make Employees Happy?

Source: People

Why you should read it:

To a certain extent, the amount of money we earn does have a direct impact on our happiness. We need to be earning enough to be comfortable, to begin with. And even beyond this, salary correlates somewhat to happiness.

Research suggests that the higher towards the £60,000 you climb, the happier you tend to feel about your life. But beyond this, there is no significant correlation between employee earnings and employee happiness.

Our favorite quote:

“Remember that money alone does not buy happiness. Do not assume that you can just throw more money at your employees, and end up with a happy workforce. If you are paying employees unfairly in comparison with one another, they will be unhappy regardless of what their rate is.”


Best HR blog post about employee benefits: 
No Budget for Salary Raises? Here are 10 Good Alternatives

Why you should read it:

A key motivational driver for your employees is the annual increase in their salaries. Employees tend to give high importance to the financial advancement opportunities in their jobs. 

But what should you do if you’re currently not in a position where you can afford providing salary raises? Read this blog post to find out! 

Our favorite quote:

“If you have no money for salary raises, it doesn’t mean that you have to lose your top employees. Good alternatives to salary increases can keep your employees motivated and happy.”


Best HR blog post about engagement:

Source: JungoHR

Why you should read it:

With remote work continuing to expand, HR departments are facing an interesting dilemma - the best way to help managers keep their remote employees productive, engaged and satisfied.

Many managers treat remote employees the same as their in-office counterparts - a tactic that fails to recognize that remote workers face some unique challenges.

Read this blog post to discover best practice tips HR can use when building an engagement strategy specifically geared toward engaging remote workers.

Our favorite quote:

“Engaged employees are happy employees. Developing an engagement strategy focused on the unique challenges remote workers face will set your company apart.” 


Best HR blog post about retention:
The Surprising Reason Why You’re Losing Your Best People

Source: RewardGateway

Why you should read it:

Here’s a statistic worth knowing: Nearly half of your employees might walk out the door tomorrow for one seemingly simple reason. Do you know what that is?

Organizations are losing their people because they’re failing at recognition. And it’s worth it to fix.

More than 90% of HR professionals agree that having an effective reward and recognition program helps has a positive effect on retention, while nearly the same amount agree that recognition drives business results.

Our favorite quote:

“3 in 5 people favor praise over money.“


Best HR blog post about employee experience: 
The Employee Experience Checkup

Source: Energage

Why you should read it:

Workplace culture, like any well-oiled machine, cannot run continuously without occasional repairs and fine tuning. One of the best ways to be intentional about culture is to check in with your employees – not just once a year, but on a more regular cadence.

The survey data collected through Employee Experience Checkup contains a treasure trove of information about employee likes, dislikes, and suggestions for what the company could do to improve the culture. 

Our favorite quote:

“Consider conducting a mid-year Employee Experience Checkup so you can track progress, stay focused, and see the impact of your changes.”
