HR in the driver’s seat: Sweetening the deal (EP:4)




While tough for some, we know many people actually love working remotely – being more autonomous with our schedules has given many people a new lease on life and seriously saved on some's commute times. So how should employers shift their rewards, recognition and engagement approaches to suit employees’ new expectations?


In this episode, James Judge talks with Monica Watt, chief human resources officer of the ELMO Group, who shares her secrets for making a business more attractive to existing and potential workers. She also tells us why in a market short on talent, holding on to your best people is more important than ever before.



“If you don’t do anything, your competitors will take your talent. So you are better off starting and doing something right now when it comes to wellness as well as reward and recognition.” – Monica Watt, chief human resources officer of the ELMO Group
