Why bettering your staff retention strategies is vital.
Every employer knows that the life of their business is the employees, the workforce, and the people in the trenches making the business run successfully. Recognizing that employees are important is half the battle. The other half is keeping them. Individuals are more apt to considering a job change if they feel they aren’t appreciated, not seeing the growth that they desire, or simply aren’t enjoying the work or environment. Today, it is becoming extremely important for companies to focus on being as proactive as possible with staff retention strategies. For the New Year, 2017, aim to perfect your business’s goals in retaining top performers.
Enhance Employee Recognition Programs
As we get into the groove of 2017, take the opportunity to assess your current team recognition program. Are there perks to the job? Program enhancements could include awards, gym memberships, catered meals, or company trips as a way to thank employees for being a valuable member of the team. Academic reimbursements are also popular tools today as companies strive to ensure employee top talent growth.
Restore Non-Traditional Benefits
More and more businesses offer non-monetary, non-traditional perks for employees to boost morale and happiness across the board. Telecommuting, even once a week, has become very popular in today’s work culture.
Regular employee surveys are a wonderful tool to garner employee satisfaction as well as monitor key elements that employees value in the workplace. A third party should perform reviews, and all employees should be assured their answers are kept completely anonymous. The results should be evaluated carefully in order to make positive changes.
Those companies that choose to look at retention strategies and ways to ensure their company culture is positive will have the greatest chance of keeping their top team!
