How to Attract and Retain Employees



The success of a company depends on a lot of factors and it would not be wrong to remark that it goes beyond the money it makes. It is important for companies, small or big, to not just attract talent but also successfully manage and maintain them. In today’s age employees attach job satisfaction to a lot of factors that go beyond monetary compensation. Employees want a good work environment, a healthy work life balance and a company that appreciates and provides opportunities for growth.

There can be no set rules to ensure employee retention. Employers need to understand the needs of their employees and this cannot be the same for all companies. Employers need to maintain an open environment and encourage employees to take part in discussions and surveys and voice their concerns whenever necessary. They need to organize training sessions for managers and those assuming a supervising role. There should be a clear definition as far as roles and responsibilities are concerned. Employers need to strive to make every employee feel that they are an integral part of the organization.

Companies need to take talent management seriously and invest in strategies pertaining to employee attraction and retention. A company is as good as its employees. Managing to create a loyal workforce ensures sustainability and success. There should be clear communication between the management and the employees. The onus lies on the Human Resource team of every company to ensure that any gaps, if existing, is bridged.
