How to Protect Your Most Valuable Business Asset: An Employee Retention Guide

Here’s a short guide for protecting and retaining employees.

Businesses can have a wealth of assets with high monetary value, but nothing will ever compare to the value of employees. After all, without an effective workforce, achieving success is impossible. With this in mind, we’ve put together a short guide for protecting and retaining employees.

Hold Well-Being Meetings

Regular 1v1 meetings are known to improve employee retention rates, but far too often they focus solely on KPIs and goal setting. Although this is essential for continued productivity, it doesn’t take into consideration employee well-being. Therefore, whenever you’re hosting such meetings, make an effort to ask the employee how they are and listen attentively when they reply. The more proactive you are about employee well-being, the more engaged they will be, which will only improve the bottom line.

Provide High-Quality Training

While making sure employees’ voices are heard is essential, it’s also important to empower them with high-quality training, which will allow them to complete their work to a higher standard. Ensuring employee skills are updated makes them feel valued and shows that you’re committed to progressing their career, making them less likely to turn their backs on your business.

Evaluate Employee Benefits

The emergence of remote working has shown people that their well-being is just as important as work, which is why more people are prioritizing employee benefits over salary when searching for a new job. Therefore, you should put together an employee benefits package that goes above and beyond the regular. For example, you can provide additional health insurance benefits solutions like prepaid cards for OTC medications, groceries, utilities, and other authorized products and services.

Make Work a Fun Environment

People aren’t looking for a work environment that feels like an episode of Saturday Night Live, but they’re also not searching for a grueling experience. Therefore, you should make an effort to inject a little fun now and again. For example, you can gamify KPIs, host employee quiz nights, and take time away from work to celebrate success and unwind. When your work environment feels fun and enjoyable, you’ll see the results in the quality of work your employees complete.

Have Trust in Your Team

Research has found that employee output is improved when they have the full trust of their managers, which means not constantly checking in or micromanaging. When you have faith in your employees to deliver, you’ll see a more productive workforce, more effective communication, and higher retention rates.

Hire the Correct People

Protecting your employees and boosting retention can start long before an employee’s first day. For example, you can make sure you’re hiring people with the right skills, attitude, and personality for the role. By not allowing poor-quality employees into your business, you’ll be supporting existing employees and you won’t find staff leaving quickly.

Employees are one of the most important aspects of any business, so make sure you’re following the strategies outlined above so they feel valued and encouraged to stick around.
