It is getting hard to keep your best employees these days as the workplace is changing and job-hopping is becoming the normal resume for millennials.
One of the most challenging parts of running a business, among others, these days is finding and keeping the talents to bring your company to the next level.
With all the innovation and technologies that you can deploy to finally recruit the ideal candidate, you will still need to engage and nurture them
So how can you keep your best employees and stop them from leaving when they are finally competent for the job.
As one of the popular HR management consulting firm to small businesses in Singapore, we have seen many SMEs that continues to be plagued with disengaged, uninterested employees who only does the minimum to keep their job, while good talents in the company leave for greener pasture.
In today’s article we have put together a few tips to help you retain your best employees stay:
There is a great sense of satisfaction and recognition when the boss openly sings appreciation for their employees’ hard work & work quality.
Granted that employers key focus is on business growth, but the truth is public recognition is one of the most effective ways to keep employees engaged and happy in their work.
When employees get bored on their job, they become unproductive and contribute minimal work output and quality just to stay afloat.
While it requires an act of careful balance, injecting sufficient work challenge into your employees’ work routines reduces the monotony and fires up creativity to seek solutions and stretch their skills. This will keep your employee engaged in their work and infuse an element of satisfaction with the job.
When an employee starts to fail at their work, the questions to ask first should be inward reflections, like “Which part of the work process is causing the person to fail?” or even “Which part of the hiring procedure went awry at the beginning”
Besides processes, employees must also be enabled with the necessary means to do their job well, things such as tools & technology resources to help them become more productive. Otherwise, they might move on to another employer who can provide them with these tools which will make them successful.
Employees that excel best at their jobs are given the rights amount of autonomy to make operational decisions about their work. A job can be done more efficiently, effectively and provide great customer (both inside & outside) experience when your employees have some level of empowerment to deliver their work.
Employers can gain immense insight reviewing “best practices” or preferred processes with employees to ensure that standards are based on operational inputs of the users.
Most employees are extra motivated by their ability to gain tangible rewards within the organization – this could come in the form of monetary or positional rewards. These rewards may also come with conditions attached such as being proficient in a type of system or being educated in new concepts & principles.
By offering ways for these employees to achieve these rewards employees show that the employer is investing in their future and that you care about their practical needs. This will make them feel that they have a vested interest in business – and when they feel vested, they’ll help share your mission.
