Are You Doing All You Can To Retain Your Employees?

A survey recently completed by the job-placement firm Manpower that found 84 percent of employees intend to look around for a new job this year, and that is up from 60 percent last year.

The high number of those wanting to change jobs is primarily because they’re disappointed with their current jobs where for the past year they’ve have increased workloads and no to small pay increases.

Business leaders can read Overland Park, KS’s Leigh Branham’s books:
•  The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave
•  Re-Engage

to learn more about why employees leave their workplaces (including non-financial reasons), and what leaders can do to boost employee retention. Both are excellent books.

  1. One of the best ways I've found to retain employees is to engage them in the business planning process. Have senior management put together annual and quarterly business plan drafts, then engage employee teams to give feedback and come up with ideas. You would be surprised what they come up with. Even better is to shut down your company for a day, and have all your employees participate in business planning (depending on the size of your company).
