Paying people is no longer enough. Companies facing “The Great Resignation” are scrambling for ways to increase employee retention, boost loyalty, and make their people proud to work for them.

4. Moving beyond diversity

When people feel free to be who they are–both privately and publicly–they’re likely to be more passionate and engaged with your business.

But of course, DE&I is about far more than just ticking boxes. It’s crucial for every business to move beyond diversity as a statistic to build equity and inclusion throughout the company culture.

This webinar features Natasha Shifrin, HiBob’s Global Outbound Sales Director, alongside Amber Vandenburg from the Pathwayz Group.

Generally speaking, people work in order to get paid. We know life isn’t that simple, though. 

The world of work has grown more complex and providing competitive employee benefits packages is essential. 

Companies offering more attractive compensation can recruit better talent than companies who simply offer the basics. This webinar can help you understand how to make your company’s pay and benefits sparkle.
