Did you know.. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) reported that, on average, it costs a company six to nine months of an employee’s salary to replace him or her? For an employee making $60,000 per year, that comes out to $30,000 – $45,000 in recruiting and training costs.
Did you know that Gallup’s research on employee engagement across the US has shown only 34% of Americans are engaged in their job? That means if you have ten employees, on average only three of them are actually giving their best efforts to help your business. And seven of the ten employees are at risk of leaving or being terminated?
Two of the key drivers to an employee’s engagement level include: “Someone at work encourages my development” and “Close bonds at work.”
At Tropical Treasure Hunt, we have created a team building service built off of best practices in learning and development as well as employee engagement. Our memorable and challenging team based competitions improve staff’s communication, leadership, critical thinking and time management skills. These activities allow coworkers to develop closer bonds that are not easily made in the office.
Our service has been trusted by some of the most prominent and well respected organizations on the island for the past four years. We would be happy to provide a brief presentation of how we can make your holiday event one that will not only make employees feel valued, but will also help keep them engaged and a part of your business this coming year.
