On this episode of the Employee Cycle podcast, we have Metha Vasquez, Founder and Managing Consultant of Meet The Peak, joining us to discuss how to engage and retain employees. We cover understanding HR data, setting benchmarks, creating programs based on what the data tells you, where HR leaders get started with engagement and retention, how to get employees involved in leading engagement programs, and much more!

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • First off, how did Metha Vasquez go from hotel and restaurant management to the wonderful world of HR?

  • What are some of the programs you develop to help your clients increase engagement and retention? And who typically leads these programs? (best practice: involve your employees)
