Increasing Employee Retention
As a leader, you should always engage your employees-listen and act on their ideas and issues.* I find that these wise words by Bill Rider radiate truth.
When employees choose to leave, it usually is NOT about money. Often, it is because they feel they are stuck at the level of authority/ success/ growth they have obtained working for you. No one likes to feel stagnant.
Once an employee feels this way, they are likely to begin looking for a new position- a position in which they believe they can thrive. Usually, this is a belief that the new job will include more authority, autonomy, and professional development. However, this may or may not be the actual case.
If you want to retain your employees – it’s crucial to include them in both the processes and successes of your business. Make sure that every member of your team feels valued and appreciated. Don’t just assume that team members are happy and don’t plan to leave, know it!
Be vulnerable and ask your team what you can do to make them feel included, engaged, and committed to your practice, your goals, and your shared success. Have fun as you engage with your team. You don’t have to stick with a traditional “Employee of the Month” award- get creative! I love team spotlight boards where each individual can leave appreciation or affirmations for other team members! 💡
Ensure that you are providing more than “a job” to your team if you want to retain them for the long-term. Your employees can find “a job” at a number of outlets- give them more than a job. It’s essential that your team members feel that you have a mutually beneficial working relationship. Invest time in the professional development of your team with as much intention as you expect them to invest their careers into your aesthetic business.
