Recruitment, team building, and coaching all wrapped into one tool

Community Family Guidance Center (CFGC) is a non-profit children’s mental health agency with about 65 employees. Most of its employees are therapists and case managers and administrators.

How to calculate employee turnover cost

A large part of employee turnover is connected to bad hiring decisions.

SHRM estimates average annual  employee turnover rates to be around 19%. For a 200 employee-sized business, that’s 38 departures every year.  In compensation terms, the real cost of employee turnover can be anywhere from  30% and cost up to 5 times  the position’s annual compensation, depending on the type of role, location, etc.

Decoding management communication

Communication is the oil that keeps the engine of your organization running smoothly, and it all starts with management. 

"I never met a good manager who wasn’t also a good communicator.” Today, more than two decades later, I still remember the conversation well.

I was discussing “what makes an effective manager” with one of our company’s HR executives.
