Employee Retention Tips
If employee retention isn’t on your mind today, it should be. If you have a team of top talent, you want to be sure that you hold on to them. Business owners who have hired employees themselves before know how rigorous and time-consuming it can be. Not to mention all the countless hours spend on-boarding new hires and training them up to be self-sufficient. With that in mind, employee retention can help your business keep great talent as well as saving costs along the way.
Consider using these tips to improve your business’s employee retention.
Provide Some Perks
Free coffee, monthly giveaways, or small discounts may not seem like a big deal to you as a business owner, however, your employees will see this as a sign of appreciation for their hard work. The perks don’t have to be expensive, either.
Flexible Work Schedules
People have busy lives – marriage, kids, and elderly parents – these all demand the time of employees outside of the workplace. If possible, allow them a flexible work schedule or the opportunity to work from home one day a week. This will help them to get all their jobs done as well as maintain their productivity at work.
Get It Right at Recruitment
Be clear during the recruitment stage about what the role entails. Perform background checks on all employees. Call their references. It saves you a lot of time to hire the right candidate than rushing to pick someone at the last minute.
