America Back to Work Ep 35: Natalie Smith, PeopleWiseHR

Employee Satisfaction Trumps Higher Salaries

In today’s economy, you may not be able to offer the most competitive salary for top talent. But what you can do is better understand what your employees are looking for, what makes them happy, and what will make their lives easier and offer that to them in the form of benefits. 

Gone are the days of the one size fits all model for employee benefits, and there is a wide variety of options for what you can offer your employees to make their lives easier—including benefits in mental health, physical fitness, transportation, and education.

Natalie Smith, best-selling author and human resources expert, joins the podcast to help us determine what it is our employees really want and how to get the best return on investment on employee benefits.
