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.
Hiring employees is complicated and challenging; it can be one of the most important management functions you perform. Assign it the priority it deserves, and you can boost the productivity and the performance of your entire team.
