Finding talented employees who are a good fit for your organization can be a big challenge, and a solid retention strategy is essential to avoid invalidating that monumental effort. Don’t let high turnover cost your business money and hurt employee morale. Smart HR’s retention strategy and design services can help you keep your most valued employees satisfied working for you.
Retention Strategy To Focus On
Here is a look at some of the components of our employee retention programs.
Recruiting The Right People
Many businesses save their concerns about retention until employees are added to their payroll, but it should really begin in the recruitment phase by attracting candidates who align with your company’s culture and have a better chance of staying with the company for the long term. We’ll help you identify the aspects of strategy and culture you wish to emphasize and seek in job candidates. When top talent believes they share values with their employer, it raises the chances they will stick with your organization.
An employee’s onboarding and first year at the company are crucial times for making them feel like a true part of your organization. We’ll show you how to best use this time to make them feel capable and at ease, increasing retention at the outset. This can involve approaches such as proper introductions, nurturing management, and mentorship programs.
Building Employee Engagement
Giving employees a voice is a proven way to keep them engaged. Your employees want to have some influence over the decisions affecting their work and the direction your company takes, and our solutions for providing every member of your team with the opportunity to provide candid feedback can lead to dramatic improvements in retention. Analyzing and acting on this feedback can make a dramatic difference.
Recognition And Rewards
Building a culture of recognition within your organization is essential. Frequent and specific acknowledgement has been shown in studies to raise employee retention. A recognition platform is a great way to show employees their work is truly appreciated.
Offering Opportunities For Professional Development
Employee development and education play vital roles in retention. We’ll show you how educating employees, establishing clear career paths and setting up coaching programs can make your workers more effective and engaged. Whether you are offering reimbursement for certification programs or encouraging development in more targeted and individualized ways, this is one of the best ways to keep employees happy and loyal.
Providing Competitive Compensation Packages
Compensation packages that combine a competitive salary with attractive benefits, work environment and rewards is a vital component of a successful retention strategy.
Focusing On Wellness
Employee burnout is common across a broad range of industries, and the associated feelings of isolation and lack of energy can cause employees to leave their role. We can advise you on proven methods of overcoming burnout, from offering more flexible hours to arranging health-related challenges.
