Elevate them to higher roles with more responsibilities. Let them guide the new talent you bring. There are many ways to make employees feel valued and trusted. Think about the possibilities that make sense for your business. 3. Treat employees like people, not numbers When employees feel overworked and undervalued, they leave. It is vital that every employee knows that managers and company leaders see them as individual, complex people with feelings.
This doesn't mean you need to be an employee's best friend, but it does mean that regular check-ins like one-on-one meetings shouldn't just be about KPIs and industry mailing list priorities. A company is only as strong as its relationships, and you have to take the time to nurture them. If their managers truly see them as unique, valuable people, you'll see fewer employees jumping ship. 4.
Shout out to your team We might turn a blind eye to the recognition of the best type of employee of the month, but we shouldn't. If you want to retain talent, find out what great people do for your company. Granted, a monthly endorsement could mean you end up approving the entire team, but what's the harm? Year-end celebrations are another time for awards. But praise should not be limited to large conferences and year-end celebrations.
