What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a successful business?
Maybe it’s a top-selling product or even a CEO serving as the face for a company…
But rarely do people put credit where it is due and remember the employees who helped propel those businesses to where they are today. In many ways, these workers are the heartbeat of organizations.
If you’re a current or potential business owner who’s looking to take their trade to the next level, then you need people invested in helping your product grow.
That’s why I’ve listed a few simple tips on how to boost your employee retention rate and get the individuals you hire to see eye-to-eye with your vision for the future of your company.
First off, it’s important to understand that encouraging your workers to stick around goes beyond additional compensation. In other words, you can’t always buy people off.
Sure, a pay raise can serve as a solid motivator, but believe it or not, retaining employees is more about the relationship they have with the boss (aka you).
Arguably the best way to strengthen this bond you share with your workers is to demonstrate leadership.
Just so were clear, the idea just isn’t to take on the persona of an authoritative figure that’s trigger happy to fire someone when things go wrong. There’s no doubt that this is one way to lead your workers, but it’s not necessarily ideal.
Instead, try to focus on treating others how you would like to be treated…
I know it sounds a bit elementary, but showing your employees the respect they deserve can go a long way. Letting your workers know that they are valuable and that their work is meaningful in the grand scheme of things.
Another way to show this appreciation is to hire from within.
Workers acknowledge the room for growth and the opportunity to work up the ranks is a great way to develop well-rounded employees that have a deep understanding of the innerworkings of your business.
Also, avoid micromanagement.
For the most part, it doesn’t matter how the job gets done just as long as it’s completed on time and standing over the shoulder of your employees does nothing more than show them that you don’t trust they’ll get their work done without your supervision. In other words, it demonstrates a lack of trust.
On the other hand, you’ll find that not micromanaging will build loyalty between you and your workers.
This sense of loyalty is key to dedicated employees because it implements a sense of security in the workplace.
Without this job security, your staff will simply view the company as a revolving door and keep their options open, rather than being fully invested in the company.
When it comes to creating a staff that you can count on to push your business to the next level, the ball if often in your court…
Being a respectful leader that avoids micromanagement can not only keep workers around, but it can encourage them to go the extra mile, especially when there’s room for growth within the company.
Whether you’re in the process of running a business or on the verge of starting your own, I encourage you to move forward with these tips in mind.
After all, you need a team of people who are invested in helping your product grow.
