Today’s job market is in a constant flux. This can make retaining top talent a challenge for some companies. Factors such as an employee’s estrangement from the company culture, or working under a manager that they don’t get along with/don’t respect, can lead to that person looking for a new place to work. This isn’t to say that you should fear your office walking out after every performance review, but just remember that for many employees, the grass is always greener. So you need to maintain your lawn! Be aware of how your employees feel about working for you, and also of what they may want to be done differently. A survey from Forbes reveals that 70% of employees don’t feel appreciated or valued by their employer, and 30% believe they’ll be working somewhere else within the next 12 months.

It’s true that you can’t stop everyone from leaving, but by making sure that you engage your employees on a personal level about what they want and need out of their job, you’re making progress toward greater retention. The same Forbes article lists the top reason for employees jumping ship: management’s failure to engage their talent’s passions, intellect and creativity. Basically, don’t box your people in. If a little creative control makes them more engaged, then, well…what are you waiting for? To read the “10 Reasons Your Top Talent Will Leave You” from Forbes, click the link below.
