How Realtors Can Help Employers Recruit & Retain Employees

Employers routinely rely on providing a depth and range of employee benefits in order to successfully recruit and retain employees.  Most often, the term “employee benefits” is limited to basics like paid vacation and sick leave but may also include access to various types of insurance - health, dental, vision, short/long-term disability, life insurance, etc.  Depending on the size of the employer, they may also provide additional services such as wellness programs, awards and recognition programs, and possibly contributions toward retirement programs.

One secret weapon that employers can add to their benefits programs, at no cost, is through a partnership with a local real estate brokerage. "Through a dedicated partnership with a leading local real estate brokerage like Engel & Völkers New Orleans, an employer is able to offer added services and support for their recruiting and retention efforts that they may have never thought possible," says Ryan Rodrigue, Vice President - Sales & Administration, Hollis Companies Employee Benefits.   Here are just a few of the ways we can help:
