Why do employees leave a job? Do they leave because they have issues with their managers, or are they unhappy with the benefits their employer offers? Or is it a disconnect between their values and the corporate culture? It’s important to understand the reasons people are leaving because, as you know, whenever you need to replace an employee, it costs your business money—and time.
There are plenty of jobs in today’s marketplace, but recruiters aren’t always able to find the talent to fill those positions. Today, when it comes to recruitment, competition is fierce, and job candidates often have the upper hand. These prospective employees can choose organizations that demonstrate corporate values in line with those they hold and to decide to work in businesses where they know they will feel valued. For these reasons, it’s essential you learn how to keep the talent you have both happy and engaged in their jobs.
According to the Gallup study, State of the American Manager: Analytics and Advice for Leaders, one in two respondents reported having left a job to get away from their manager at some point in their career. No matter how certain you are of your own management style, and that of your company’s leadership, when employees leave—or talk about quitting—you need to stop and take a minute to look at yourself and your managers. Ask yourself: What can we do to retain the employees we want and need to run this business? And, where do we start?
Analyze the Data
Begin by analyzing the data. Successful organizations scrutinize the information to understand why a person has left one job for another, and more importantly, why others are content to stay. These same businesses review every aspect of what the company is doing well and where there is a need for improvement. And, they are learning both how to increase employee engagement and what it will take to keep their workers happy in the workplace.
Understanding how to retain your existing workforce, increase engagement, and attract top talent in today’s competitive marketplace is vital to growing your business. Need help? Plan to attend the upcoming webinar, 6 Tips to Harness Data and Keep Your Talent.
