“If employees don’t fit in with your work environment, I guarantee they won’t be happy. They won’t fit in, they won’t get along with their co-workers, and they’ll feel lonely.”MetKnow's mission is to help employees feel like they belong. It can be difficult for an employee to join in a conversation that a group of coworkers is having when they cannot think of their names and do not know if they have any shared interests. MetKnow helps everyone learn each other's name and learn more about the people we spend most of our working days with.
Employee turnover is expensive. In fact according to a study by Mia Josebachvili, “retaining a salesperson for three years instead of two, along with better onboarding and management practices, yields a difference of $1.3 million in net value to the company over a three year period.” One of the top reasons an employee leaves a company is because they do not feel like they have a relationship with their boss or co-workers. MetKnow is a relationship builder for the office.
