In Why Feedback Matters

At the core of many business' performance is their employees. Retaining staff is one of the many challenges organisations face.

Here are some great ideas you can use to encourage your staff to stay at your business.

Employee engagement

One of the most important ways you can improve retention is to ensure your employees are actively connected to the core of your business. This is also known as engagement.

According to a Corporate Leadership Council survey, ensuring that your staff are engaged will mean they are more likely to stay in the company for years to come.

In fact, those employees who are the most committed are 87 per cent less likely to leave a company, according to the survey results.

So, how can you ensure your staff are actively engaged in your company?

Undertake a staff engagement survey

A survey can indicate not only how engaged your staff already are, but what needs to be done in order to keep them committed and even boost engagement further.

Your employees may be able to come up with suggestions or indicate areas that need improving. This could help to foster a sense of trust as they may feel their ideas are being taken into account.

Company strategies

The Corporate Leadership Council survey found one of the main drivers of employee engagement comes from company strategies and policies rather than specific characteristics of the staff themselves.

Making your staff aware of these policies and how their role fits in could be a great way to boost engagement as well as retention in the long run.

This can make staff feel more valued, which ensures they stay on.
