The Engaged Workplace: More than Free Lunch

“How do I keep my top employees happy and excited to come to work?”

Whether you’re a high level manager, an HR professional or a small business owner, chances are you’ve asked yourself this question at least once. Happy employees are something companies strive for. After all, they’re the ones that stick around, right? And from a business perspective, happy employees deliver results. 

But in today’s millennial-laden workforce, where bean bag chairs, cocktail hours, and free lunches are almost a given, it takes a bit more to keep your top talent chipper.

One thing we do know: employee satisfaction is about more than just a fully-stocked fridge. Employees crave a stimulating environment that keeps them engaged – one that cultivates teamwork, innovation, and real-time feedback.

Take MGM Resorts International for example: just five short years ago, MGM was on the verge of bankruptcy. Today, MGM is an industry leader in hospitality and entertainment. What changed?

“I am most proud of our people philosophy,” says Michelle DiTondo, SVP of HR at MGM. “We built all of our strategies, competencies, and culture initiatives around engaging and inspiring (our employees).”
