How To Retain Best Employees
You spend a lot of time, effort and resources trying to attract the right talent for the roles available at your organisation. Well, it doesn’t stop there because you need to do some work on keeping them too! This is where sadly, some companies fall short because the employee is made to feel like the ‘grass is greener’ when actually, it often isn’t. That said, as a business, you need to keep your workforce happy, engaged and interested over a long period of time. We’ve written a detailed blog to give you a few tips and methods of being able to do this. The long-term benefits to your business should not be underestimated.
When a member of staff leaves, it leaves you having to invest your time in recruiting new staff and training up new employees. You’re left with one less position than you previously had, a skill-set deficit until filled once again of course and sometimes you’re obliged to financially support the person leaving so you could be out of pocket too.
The knock on effects of this scenario can be felt by the rest of the team too in different ways, which can lead to more people leaving etcetera, it can be a domino effect. However, if you work hard to ensure you get the right people on board in the first place as well as implement a strategy to keep them, make them feel wanted and rewarded, then you’ll be buying people gifts for 25 years service plus in no time!
