You have a great team of employees that constantly exceeds your expectations. They seem to be enthusiastic and motivated, as well as passionate about the work they are doing. The only problem is, they are leaving one by one. They are sending you resignation letters, and you do not have an idea how to stop it.
It’s sad. When employees seem to have one too many bad days, they may be thinking of leaving their job behind. Employee retention these days is more than just about making employees happy in the present. It is also important to consider their happiness and satisfaction for the long term.
Here are a few reasons why employees are packing their bags, and insight on what you can do to keep this from happening:
No Career Growth
It is extremely important for employees to have the ability to grow in their career path. This is why employers need to ask team members about their own goals and expectations. It is always important to find out the skills they want to sharpen or acquire. It is also advisable to offer leadership training and mentorship programs.
When you give employees the tools they need, they will be motivated to achieve their professional goals. They will also be motivated to come to work and contribute to the company’s success.
No Success Contribution
Employees want to know that their work affects the company. The bad news is, team members are just compensated for their performance, and not how they contribute to the organization’s overall success. It can be disappointing to know that they are just part of the process and not the result.
It always makes sense to give employees a share of the profit or reward them for their contribution. This will help make them feel like they are truly an important part of the organization, rather than just replaceable staff members. Profit shares, if feasible, will strengthen relationship with employees.
No Promotion Within
When employers do not promote from within, employees may feel the need to leave their jobs to advance at another company. If you have a new management position, you don’t always have to hire outside. It is always better to promote a top performer to save on time and resources spent on training someone new and unfamiliar with internal processes.
