Listen Now: Working With the Best
Finding good employees can take a lot of time and effort; make sure that once you have them, you keep them.
If a solid worker has ever left your company you have probably seen the disaster they leave in their wake. Suddenly work is completed more slowly, and problems you never saw coming are popping up. So if you want to keep your best people around, here are the five things Forbes magazine says to avoid.
One example is tolerating below average work. If your best employees are putting in the hours and consistently churning out good results make sure they know you notice them. Giving everyone the same perks and incentives can stir resentment and make people feel unappreciated.
Another no no is sticking your best employees on dead end paths. If someone cannot see a clear upward movement they will start looking somewhere else for a paycheck. For more ways to stop people from jumping ship, check out the full article on Forbes.
A company is only as good as its best workers.
