What draws workers to a company? It could be good wages or benefits, or it might be the company’s reputation. What makes them leave? A company culture that doesn’t align with expectations. Retaining your staff may require you to analyze and tweak your company culture.
Workers want to be engaged. They want coaching and mentoring, feedback, and recognition for their accomplishments.
Management should know their employees’ strengths and weaknesses. It’s important to cross-train staff members, take the time to talk to them and ask if they like what they’re doing, and watch for employees who might be good for a leadership position.
Tangible rewards should go beyond salary. Provide incentives like gift certificates for employees who meet goals or achieve something remarkable. Perfect attendance is one example of an accomplishment to be rewarded, but smart managers will find many opportunities to reward achievements.
Successful companies take care of their employees. Basics like clean, comfortable working environments, flexible shifts, and recognition for jobs well done will go a long way in retaining employees.
