lower turnover than its competitors, higher
employee engagement rates than industry
benchmarks, and improved year-over-year
diversity and inclusion metrics.
team constantly monitors the external marketplace
to understand emerging best practices, allowing the
company to remain competitive.
Culture is Critical
Evaluating these various sources of information can
help organizations develop a nuanced vision of their
employees' stressors and priorities that can be used to
inform the benefi ts strategy. But in order to truly gain
an honest perspective, HR leaders should work to create
a culture and workplace environment that employees

has messy and full lives, and it is one of our jobs as the
employer to support our employees. We like to focus
on work-life connectedness, not balance, and we offer
our employees the fl exibility and benefi ts they need to
successfully navigate their work life and their home life.
That drives a sense of belonging which drives better
results, no matter which metric you are measuring. "
One inexpensive way organizations can create a culture
that supports families is by offering fl exible work
arrangements. For example, Cargill offers benefi ts
like compressed work weeks, fl ex time, job sharing,
telecommuting, increased paid time off, and altered
stop and start times. While offering more paid time off
comes at a cost, Baker says that organizations should
look at the big picture when building the business case.
Ultimately, the increased fl exibility lowers turnover and
increases productivity, offsetting the initial fi nancial
burden.
