How many of your employees are looking to jump ship right now?
The wave of people looking for another job is rising again with reports suggesting that half of employees will be looking for new jobs right now.
So what can you do to retain your team?
With employee engagement figures staying shockingly low, as a business leader, something must change if we are to create, build and maintain a team of loyal, brand ambassadors who are not only fulfilling their potential but pulling the business to continue and accelerate the growth of the business.
Because losing staff isn’t just an inconvenience. It is costly, time consuming and bad for the company reputation if you have high staff turnover. Who wants to work for an organisation where everyone is jumping ship?
But we know that the pressures of the working day can often prove too intense to spend too much time constantly focusing on employee engagement, which is why we have come up with this easy to remember anagram to incorporate into your everyday activity which should boost your employee engagement and improve your business growth simultaneously! All you need to do is think: TEAM!
T – Time
Plan your tasks so that you have scheduled times when you interact, support and encourage your team. This will mean that you don’t miss vital opportunities to keep in touch with your team and provide crucial support when it is most needed.
E – Effective
With people you cannot be efficient, you have to be effective. Take away the ‘tick in the box’ tasks – people know they are just part of a system!
A – Attention
When you interact with your team, pay attention to their style characteristics, body language and when they work the best. By picking up on individual characteristics you will be able to adapt your communication to best suit theirs and therefore get better results from them.
M – Motivation
Do you know what is driving the individual members of your team? By knowing this you will be able to formulate emotional connections with your team and their work which will produce self-motivated, top quality results because they will actually care about it!
