  1. Workplace Stability: Creating Conditions that Lead to Retention, Productivity, and Engagement in Entry-Level Workers

    There is no question that increased worker stability boosts productivity, retention and morale, which leads to greater profitability - but it may yet be a challenge you need to address. Why would an employer want to increase the personal and professional stability of workers? And how exactly can business go about it? It starts with seeing things differently. Instability is another measure of diversity in your workforce. Low-wage workers can experience personal instability that leads to absenteeism, health problems and violations of workplace expectations, all of which decreases morale, attention to work and job performance. These simple, inexpensive solutions can help stabilise your employees' lives - and boost your profitability and competitive advantage.
