Satisfied employees are simply more productive and more efficient. They tend to work harder, contribute more, and call in sick less. They feel empowered, appreciated, and are more loyal. They stick around so companies don’t have to spend as much time and money recruiting and training new workers. Happy employees also tend to rave about their workplace, which can often attract new talent. When job seekers are clamouring to work for a company, that company gets to choose the cream of crop to join their team.
Include them: People (especially great people) like to feel that they’re an integral part of the success of their company. Two simple ways good companies do this: 1) let people know what’s happening and why, and 2) give them as much influence over decisions as possible.
Support them: In companies that are bad at keeping great people, employees tend to feel that they’re twisting in the wind most of the time.
Development:Companies invest in customer success and satisfaction, and Companies must do the same with employees through ongoing development. The development process should begin on an employee’s first day and expand the length of their time with the company.
Pay Attention to their Issues: To avoid losing employees, pay attention to what might be causing them to consider leaving in the first place. Just as business owners use customer reviews to improve upon their product, employers should rely on regular performance reviews.
