How We Strengthen Employee Engagement
Eastridge Workforce Solutions (“Eastridge”), one of the nation’s leaders in workforce solutions, is giving away a Tesla Model S to an employee who participated in the company-wide incentive program that encourages communication, collaboration and employee engagement.
Today’s labor market has resulted in an intense competition for attracting and retaining a skilled workforce. With the competition for talent intensifying, the management of a diverse workforce is becoming increasingly complex. Individuals seeking career changes are receiving multiple offers from new employers and counter offers to remain with their current employers as evidence of a shrinking talent pool of top caliber professionals.
Eastridge Workforce Solutions is responding to the highly competitive market for employees by investing heavily in programs designed to attract and retain a multigenerational workforce.
Since rebranding all of its divisions as Eastridge Workforce Solutions earlier this year, Eastridge set out to increase employee engagement through communication and collaboration. To further enhance both their clients’ and candidates’ experience, Eastridge has focused on attracting and retaining top talent within their own organization.
Seth Stein, President of Workforce Recruitment, shared, “with the competition for talent rising, the only way we will fulfill our strategic vision is to remain competitive by attracting the best employees. One way we have done this is by creating a company-wide incentive program where all employees are eligible to receive a bonus and entry into a raffle to win a brand new Tesla.”
The new incentive program is based on collaboration and serves as a way for Eastridge to demonstrate commitment to their core values and drive employee engagement.
Why Tesla? Well, besides its more obvious role as a technological marvel, Tesla Motors designs and manufactures eco-friendly cars in the USA, adding jobs and boosting the U.S. economy, without compromising their commitment to hiring and developing the best talent from around the world.
The program has been extremely successful in creating excitement in all Eastridge’s offices since it began in July 2014. Four months before the scheduled end date of October 2015, employees of Eastridge have already met and exceeded the goal, guaranteeing that an employee will win the Tesla. However, Eastridge has decided to keep the program open through the original end date, allowing all new employees to also have a chance to contribute and win.
The winner of the brand new Tesla will be announced at the company’s annual conference in San Diego, CA, on December 5, 2015.
