How do you keep your best employees and attract dedicated, diverse, new talent?
If you are like many of my clients, you are frustrated at the hiring process. Maybe, the demand for labor in your market is highly competitive and you feel like you are offering employees everything they ask for without getting the same in return. You might be recovering from the pandemic disruption and are finding it harder than before to fill open positions. At the same time you are struggling to adapt while your remaining employees are overworked, and showing signs of burnout.
If you don't act your business could find itself in a toxic loop that can no longer deliver the quality of service or product your branding, marketing, and mission have promised the community. As experienced employees leave in hope of finding a better work-life balance, new employees are left without the support and guidance tenure provides, leaving more of that work on your plate.
Protect yourself from triggering this cycle by developing an Employee Retention & Burn Out Mitigation Strategy.
Know the what benefits you are offering and how they compare to the market and industry.
Determine what support you and your business can offer to employees who experience burn out to show your appreciation for the value they are adding & understanding of the additional responsibilities they are carrying due to understaffing or outside circumstances.
Identify informal benefits and employee accommodations to create parameters and transform them into reliable transparent benefits employees can rely on.
