In today’s hiring environment, employee retention is more important than ever. Here are 4 tips you can use to improve your organization’s employee retention right now.
Create the Right Work Culture
Finding employees who will feel a strong bond with your company starts with creating an environment that attracts those employees. Your company culture should match the type of employee you want to employ, whether you opt for a by-the-book strict workplace or a more casual laid-back atmosphere.
Hire the Right Employees
ESC knows that having an employee with the right skill set is important; however, ESC also strongly believes that work skills can be taught and it is important to hire an employee who fits the company’s culture. An employee will work harder and stay at a company longer if they feel a strong bond to the company’s culture.
Be More Flexible
Workers have expressed a preference for flexible working conditions. If you expect your best employee to answer his phone when a client calls at seven o’clock on a Friday evening, you should also understand when that employee comes in late one morning or needs to leave early.
Small businesses often struggle to compete with larger corporations in providing benefits. ESC will work with clients to tailor a Fortune 500-level benefits package that allows them to offer their employees a wide range of benefit options while still being cost-efficient. Along with competing healthcare options, companies may want to offer other benefits, such as the ability to work from home, more flexible vacation offerings, and performance bonuses.
