Workplace Communication

7 reasons why your best employees want to leave

Hiring and then retaining the best staff is a massive challenge today. Competition for skilled and talented staff, particularly in retail, is at an all-time high. With customer experience at the top of the list, it is essential that retailers have the best people in their stores. The challenge then is to keep them. Millennials are renowned for their job-hopping (or so we are told) as they look to build experience as well as work out what they want to do long term. As they make up the bulk of the workforce, when a retailer finds great ones (and there’s plenty out there), they need to be able to hold on to them. This video uncovers the 7 reasons why any team member (especially millennials) wants to leave and highlights what to do to reduce the likelihood of them leaving.

The Perfect Boss: Dr. Axel Zein at TEDxStuttgart

Axel Zein promotes a new way we manage businesses today: think of business as a sport. In sports, the team is decisive; the team with the best players usually wins. And sports are fun. So what qualifies a manager to be the perfect coach for his team? Who is doing the work in a normal company? It is not the CEO, not the managers but the engineers, the guys on the shop floor and the sales reps. They are the players on the field. A manager is supposed to be their coach. But we are not educated to be coaches. During our careers, we usually encounter a couple of really bad bosses, many mediocre managers, and only a few outstanding ones. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

How To Be Rich In A Poor Country

As many fans of this channel know, I’m an African and grew up in Africa. It’s easy to believe that you’re destined for poverty and YES, most people from poor countries believe that. However, when I was around 17, I started questioning such an assumption and the reason for my different opinion is because I often see rich people, even in my country. But there are some other explanations for the reasons why some people are rich in poor countries. It may be that these people do ugly or illegal stuff. Maybe their father is a politician who has stolen a lot of money or maybe it’s just luck. Anyway, I decided to study how money works and see myself whether being rich has something to do with luck, stealing or anything like that. By age 20, I already knew the formula of wealth creation and I was ready to follow such formula. In today’s video, I’ll be sharing with you how to be rich in a poor country.

10 Employee Retention Resolutions

00:13 Employee retention has a huge impact on your bottom line–and now is a great time to make some employee retention resolutions that will pay off all year long.

00:45 Poor employee retention can be a pricey problem for any business. High turnover rates result in lost productivity and additional expenses such as recruiting, hiring, and training replacement employees.

01:21 Hire smart. Taking the time to draft job descriptions, recruit candidates, and interview thoroughly will pay off.

01:34 Offer a fair and competitive compensation package. Know the norm for the position, your industry, and your area of the country.

01:47 Offer an attractive benefits program, including items such as medical insurance, a 401(k) or other retirement savings plan, or even perks such as subsidized health club memberships.

01:58 Train and mentor your employees. Help them set goals for both their role in the company and overall career, and provide support to help them get there.

02:14 Put a priority on work/life balance for your employees. This can take the form of flexible work hours or even the ability to work at home for some positions.

02:31 Recognize employee achievements and contributions that go over and above regular job performance. You can do this through regular, formal programs, such as “Employee of the Month,” or on an ad hoc basis.

02:49 Leadership opportunities are also great motivators for empowering employees and increasing satisfaction. Give your employees the chance to take ownership of projects and to be engaged at higher, strategic levels when possible.

03:03 Offer regular feedback throughout the year on performance rather than holding it all for the formal review. This gives your employees the opportunity to change or amend any shortfalls or issues, and reduces the likelihood that they will be unpleasantly surprised at review time.

03:18 Solicit feedback from employees through such means as employee attitude surveys where employees can give confidential feedback on their opinions of your company in terms of satisfaction with the job, and suggestions on how their jobs and work environment might be improved.

03:44 Foster teamwork both in and out of the office. You can engage in formal team-building training at work, or coordinate outside opportunities such as a company softball league or recreational outings.

Four Questions to Help You Manage Poor Performance by Tasha Eurich

Dealing with poor performers is one of the quintessential challenges that all leaders face. There are often many other reasons employees are performing poorly than the fact that they can’t do their jobs. Here are four questions you can answer to help you diagnose or understand the root of poor performance. On average, managers spend 34 days a year dealing with performance problems. First question: Does this employee really understand my expectations? Second question: Does my employee have something outside of their control that’s preventing them from performing? Third question: Does my employee know they’re not performing up to my expectations? Fourth question: Am I in some way contributing to this performance problem? It is important to recognize the role you play in helping your employees to be successful. If you have gone through these questions, and the performance issue is still there, it may be time to face reality where you will both be better off.

How to Handle Salary Questions

The salary question is always a sensitive matter. One thing we know for sure is that you should not bring up salary questions/negotiation in the interview. If the employer asks or insists, you need to handle the matter carefully. If asked about your current salary, keep in mind, to be honest since they will find out sooner or later. And do not be the one to name the salary figure or amount of compensation first. You do not want to low volume yourself or price yourself out of their range. That being said, the best answer to this question is below. “Based on the responsibilities that are involved with the position and the level of importance I know that this company places on the role, I’m confident that the right candidate would be properly compensated “ However, depending on the company/industry you apply for, they might expect you to answer this question with a specific numerical figure. In that case, look up Glassdoor or LinkedIn to research a typical salary range for the position you applied for, and prepare your answer before the interview.
