The GLS Group offers many different custom employee engagement programs that are proven to increase employee engagement and happiness which then leads to higher retention and productivity.
It can be hard to find good people that fit with the roles, culture, and embody the values that your company holds. Often, it can be even harder to keep good employees if you aren't engaging them.
Employee retention is essential because every time you lose a good employee, you waste time, money, and other resources trying to find and train someone who might not even work out. A recent Gallup study, State of the American Workplace, found that only 33% of US-based employees are considered "engaged." The cost of unengaged employees in the US is between $483 billion to $605 billion each year in lost productivity.
Employee engagement is the relationship between organizations and their staff, and the goal of creating organizational success and professional wellbeing in the workplace.
Though many people refer to employee wellbeing as "happiness," it's better defined as a combination of role clarity, ability to do one's best work, feedback and recognition, as well as a compelling company mission/brand; those constitute the foundational components of employee engagement.
The mindset and mentality of employees and the way they perform under your leadership is key. Employees now want engagement, transparency, and interaction from their leaders, who must create work environments that provide a support network to employees as they strive for off-the-chart results.
People want to succeed, grow, and create exceptional results so that they feel like they are a part of the team and the success in their company. That said, it is your job as a leader to guide and encourage your team. When you have an effective strategy in place for doing so, results will follow. Monitoring success rates within your organization and mapping out your team's goals and an actionable approach for attaining them are direct ways to achieve maximum results—for both the short and the long term.
If you're in a managerial position, it's up to you to provide your team with the tools and inspiration to help them succeed. You must first make sure your team truly wants to take pride in their work and has the motivation needed to increase their performance levels. And one of the best methods to drive this is effective recognition and coaching. Just 3 in 10 employees thinks that someone is encouraging them actively.
As we noted, 67% of Americans aren't engaged in their work and don't feel connected to their jobs; often, that means they do only the bare minimum and produce low-level results. As an employer, it's in your best interest to bring employee engagement into the workplace.
If you are struggling to retain your good employees, chances are they feel unengaged, underappreciated, and non-essential. The GLS Group offers many different custom employee engagement programs that are proven to increase employee engagement and happiness which then leads to higher retention and productivity!

The other day I received your package . I was blown away by your company’s generosity in making things right. I was expecting the "peeler knife" to be a small peanut knife size knife not a full sized Buck folder. I am pretty much speechless! As for the fillet knife, it is exactly what I wanted. I am heading to north-western Ontario next week (north of Minnesota) where the fish can be shall I say large.

You (GLS) is really an extension of our marketing team
I highly recommend GLS Group. They have worked with our store for several years, and also collaborated with Ernst & Young when I was there. They are a top-notch group with excellent client service and very competitive prices. Best of all, they don't require a huge commitment from their customers! We like them so much that our HR department hired them to do our annual staff service award program.
Awesome as always GLS! I appreciate the effort and energy you have expended. Exemplary service! You make me think that you care for our customers as much as I do!
You folks are fantastic - we have dealt with other vendors for these kind of materials and this is by far the easiest and most accommodating experience we've had. You are a fountain of patience.
