It is certainly a seller’s market out there on the job front at the moment and so this has made it very difficult for businesses to find suitable employees that are going to stay with them for the long haul. There is far too much staff turnover in today’s modern business society and this certainly needs to change. People go from job to job regularly throughout their careers and this is costing businesses time and money. It can be incredibly frustrating for you as an employer to hire someone, to train someone and to invest in them only for them to leave 3 to 4 years later.
This is why you need to have a better employment and recruitment strategy and many businesses are using modern technology like an HR dashboard to provide them with an essential reports that allow them to have statistics on the job market and what employees are currently doing. If you have your own human resource department then it’s likely that it only consists of two or three people and so this is a lot of responsibility to put onto anyone shoulders.
If you want to improve upon your human resource needs then you need more Agile HR and you certainly need better solutions when it comes to your overall human resource needs. The following are just some of the solutions that you might want to consider.
- Compensation & other benefits – Maybe it’s time that you took another look at what it is that you offer potential employees will come into work with your company and to stay there. Believe it or not but many employees favour other benefits over the salary that they are being offered and so you might want to consider offering daycare facilities to employees or other beneficial things that can make life easier for them.
- Engage in better communication – Employees often leave because of a lack of communication and HR KPIS tell us that because management or owners do not communicate their needs then staff get frustrated and so they want to leave. When you hire someone, it is important that you communicate them about the values and the expectations that your organisation requires so that they are clear from the get go.
When you use the above tips and you get the best staff possible then it is important that you invest in them and you help to train them and to grow their talent within your organisation.
