Focus on These 7 Key Areas to Retain Employees

For most businesses, hiring employees requires significant effort and expense. So for most businesses understanding their HR's role in employee engagement as a part of the retention strategy is a top priority. To understand how to retain good employees, you first need to know what they’re looking for. Today, the best employees want:

  • Career development opportunities and a chance to grow in their chosen field
  • Regular feedback on how both they and the company are doing
  • A chance to contribute directly to the organization and be recognized for it
  • Flexible work schedules that recognize their need for work / life balance
  • A good salary or wage and an opportunity to increase it over time
  • Benefits tailored to their individual needs

Key Strategies For Employee Retention

Good retention starts from the time you begin with cloud-based talent acquisition software for recruiting to the time they leave your company. Tweaking some of your employment and workforce management process can have a big impact on employee retention: New call-to-action

  • Recruitment and hiring:  When there’s a good match between employees and your organization, retention is less likely to be an issue.

  • Orientation and onboarding: Treating employees right in the critical early stages of employment has been proven to improve retention.

  • Training and development: Training and development are key factors in helping employees grow with your company and stay marketable in their field.

  • Performance evaluation: When employees know what they’re doing well and where they need to improve, both they and your organization benefit.

  • Pay and benefits:  While today many employees tend to rate factors such as career development higher than pay, good pay and benefits still count.

  • Internal communication: Employees need to know—and be reminded on a regular basis—how the organization is doing and what they can do to help.

  • Termination and outplacement: Employees who leave on good terms are much more likely to recommend your company, and in doing so, help you attract and retain future employees.

Cloud-Based HCM Technology Can Help

Human capital management technology can help bolster your retention efforts by giving you the tools to develop your strategy and streamline & improve the workforce management processes by: 

  • Helping managers define roles and competencies before making a hiring decision, so you are able to select candidates who possess the necessary skills and more strongly exhibit the characteristics you are looking for in specific roles

  • Tracking certifications, training, competencies, and career paths, with information seamlessly shared across talent acquisition, HR, payroll, and self-service applications.

  • Automating low-value tasks and facilitate managing in the moment, so you can spend more time managing, coaching, and developing employees

  • Allowing managers to identify where performance goals are not being met and provide coaching

  • Building mentor/mentee relationships by putting high performers and low performers together across generations and experience levels.
