You may not realize it, but you could be a target of employment lawsuits. Race, gender and retaliation are among the most frequently reported charges. In 2007, the EEOC stated that it settled over 72,000 charges filed, collecting $345 million in compensation for persons who claimed workplace discrimination. Even though we are beginning to see signs of a turnaround, the current weak state of the national economy has caused many employers to continue workforce reductions, so the number of charges from employees separated for economic reasons can also be expected to increase.
Because employees are becoming increasingly savvy about planning for the future, one of the key benefits they look for in an employer is a good retirement plan. They value the opportunity to work for a company that provides employee benefits such as access to special financial programs like 401(k) plans. In fact, employee benefit programs like these can be a key factor in recruiting and retaining the best employees.
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.
