HERE WE ARE AT THE BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR – IT’S HARD TO believe it is 2018. It seems the start of a new year always makes us think about new goals on both a personal and professional level. As HR professionals, we are reminded that our team members have and/ or need goals, too. Sometimes these goals are placed before them as challenges – not by themselves, but by their employer. This can keep team members engaged, as it makes them feel their work is valued, and help with an issue that remains top-of-mind for HR professionals no matter the year, such as employee retention.
