One of the most important things an employer can do to retain employees is to provide them with training and development. Think training has to be an expensive, planned event? Think again!
Although traditional classroom or seminar types of training and development are the most common, there are other methods. Get creative in how you develop your employees and they just might stick around awhile, which can increase your company’s profitability, ensure lasting relationships with your clients and get happier employees! This will help your company stay successful.
Maintaining employee loyalty in these tough economic times can be difficult for an employer, especially for those companies that find they need to do more with fewer resources in order to maintain their business and still be successful. Human behavior theorists have proven that individuals have different reasons for working and are motivated differently. We know that employee empowerment and motivation are key mechanisms that drive employee loyalty and yield optimal productivity.
2010 has presented several unique hiring challenges for employers. Despite staggering unemployment claims, wage freezes and economic upheaval throughout the business community, for certain industries and specific areas of the nation, identifying qualified employees has been harder than ever before. Though a single online ad posting may attract hundreds of responses, the level of skill and experience can very often prove to be less than required and sometimes misrepresented. And though candidates in search of work can and do often contribute tangibly more than the sum total of their education and experience reflected by way of their ambition, attitude and motivation, it is always helpful for future employers to have an objective and realistic understanding of the level of skill that a specific candidate brings to the position at hand.
