HR and business leaders say they will focus on this in 2017
Waggl CEO, Michael Papay, recently spoke with Alice Keefe of Workforce Magazine about Voice of the Workplace results predicting 2017 business and HR strategies and the current challenges many companies face in attracting top talent.
The recent Workforce Magazine article mentioned Waggl’s Voice of the Workforce (VOTW) response results from hundreds of business and HR leaders about priorities for the coming year.
Interestingly, only a mere 1/3 felt current training programs were meeting development needs. With 86% saying they could be doing more to attract top talent. VOTW also revealed that only 54% of respondents feel that their company effectively executes on strategic goals and plans. However, 89% responded that they are taking active steps to improve employee engagement.

“Employers who manage their culture and their brand to have a shot at attracting top talent, and it needs to be really authentic.” said Michael Papay, Waggl CEO.
“The power has shifted to the employee, where 10 years ago it was the employer. Because of the on-demand world we live in, where feedback is accessible in real-time on websites like Glassdoor, where employees can voice their thoughts on what it’s like to work at a particular company, potential employees get a real-time look at what it’s like to work at an organization.”
