Being that Darius Fisher has previously worked as a consultant to political figures, and having a firm that handles public relations, his advice is one to adhere to when it comes to reducing turnovers by increasing employee satisfaction in the workplace. Darius has laid out a few solutions to tackle this matter, in order to cut down the cost of turnover rates.
First, it is important to have a goal for employees to work toward. If you incentivize people in the workplace, you make for a more production-driven and healthily competitive atmosphere. People just don’t want to show up for work, but they want to be rewarded for it too. You must know what makes them happy, in order for the incentivizing to be effective. Give them a free vacation, spa package or dinner and a movie.
Next, don’t overlook your employees. Workers appreciate being praised for their accomplishments. Acknowledging them in front of the team or even through a simple email blast will bring their confidence up to a new level. There’s nothing better than going to a job where you feel like you’re more than a worker bee. Positive acclamation will take your company a long way.
Lastly, it is very important to have consideration for your staff. Though some may not express it often, they really do want to know what changes occur within the company. The way to cut down the number of disgruntled employees is to keep them in-the-know when it comes to new hire potentials, new developments, hot topics and highlights, and new services that the company may be offering. This can be done by holding meetings every week or every month. One may also consider starting a company newsletter to take care of these same topics.
