What Can You Do to Help with Employee Turnover?
If one of your best people is out looking for another job, consider this: there is probably something in the current work environment that is unsatisfactory. It's perfectly normal for unhappy high performers to seek opportunities that offer better status, growth, challenge or pay. Listen to your employees. Schedule one-on-one check-ins to hear from them. Study after study shows that employees want to be informed, challenged and supported by colleagues and supervisors that care for them and given the resources to do the best job possible. Money is rarely the true reason for employee turnover. For more on this topic, here are two book recommendations: 12 - The Elements of Great Managing by Rodd Wagner & James K. Harter and The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly.
