Why are positive workplaces so important?

According to Indeed, the power of online reviews and the tight labour market means it’s crucial for employers to create positive employee experiences to attract candidates and retain employees.

In fact, a positive workplaces leads to more engaged workers - which in turn creates a 20 per cent increase in productivity, and makes them 90 per cent more likely to stay with their current companies.

“An enjoyable work environment ladders up to the bigger theme of employee experience, which encapsulates everything an employee feels over the course of their journey at a company,” Indeed said.

“Consistently good employee experiences will lead to highly engaged candidates and an exceptional company culture, which are attributes these Top-Rated Workplaces share.”
