Retaining Tips

Boost Employee Morale And Improve Your Bottom Line

Part 1

A recent multi year study of 100,000 employees by the Gallup Organization concludes that there are 12 employee attitudes that relate to a company’s profitability. In addition, the role of managers and supervisors is extremely important. The study results show that employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers and supervisors. We’ll take the first six questions you can ask of your management team and staff that will give you a quick assessment of employee attitudes and lead you to create solutions that will help you retain highly productive employees.

Ask your employees these questions:

  • Do you know what’s expected of you at work?
  • Do you have the materials and equipment you need to do your work right?
  • At work, do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day?
  • In the last seven days, have you received recognition or praise for doing good work?
  • Does your supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about you as a person?
  • Is there is someone at work who encourages your development?

These questions will help you determine employee attitudes and will give you a good place to start assessing what your employee need to want to stay with you!
