But those will not matter if they had left the company early. That is why you should be able to discern which one is the best employee right from the start. And, this means the hiring process itself. Retaining your employees is an essential aspect of every company, and this process should be done appropriately.
Here are some ways to recruit better employees and reduce the turnover rate of your company.
Look for someone who can stay longer in any circumstance. Be kind enough to evaluate the one who is being interviewed. Make sure that the applicant has the vision to remain long in the company, and that you share the same goals and vision with the applicant. It is sad to look at a relationship that is one-sided, where only one side commits, the other receives.
Ask serious questions. When questions are being asked, make sure that they are not just fundamental interviewer questions, but you could include things that relate to your company. At least, they will have a brief overview of what their potential future work could be.
Don’t be biased. This is one of the biggest mistakes that employers commit. Being biased will cause a downfall of a company. Treat your employees fairly as this will represent your company. This will show you are a good leader which provides equal opportunity to all.
Now, these people are hired, you need to look at some points so that they would be staying longer in your company, this will minimize the turnover rate of the company.
Appreciate your employees. Everyone, no matter who you are or where you are, you need to be recognized. If you feel like someone remembers you, you will feel acknowledged for the effort you made for the company. And that is one thing that every employee needs.
Train your employees. It is not just all appreciation, respect and love. Employees need to be skillful too. Therefore you need to train them. Providing an opportunity for growth and learning will motivate them to stay longer.
Turning over is costly. Turnovers are expensive; it could cost way more than the salary of the employee for the current month. Before having that kind of decision, make sure to think it out and double check.
So, having heard of those, if you are an employer who fails to look at some of these points in your workplace, then start observing it now.
As HR becomes more strategic, innovative companies are creating employee experiences that not only increase employee satisfaction, but also drive a faster digital transformation journey.
