Out with the great resignation, in with the great retention.

Encouraging employers to see things from employees’ point of view

In this article, we discuss the importance of employers considering the perspective of their employees as we head into 2023. This year has seen a higher than usual number of employees changing jobs, driven by changing attitudes and expectations in the workplace. Employers may be concerned about this trend, especially in light of a tight labour market and difficulties with recruitment, as reported in the CIPD's Good Work Index. [add short link here ]

However, there are steps that employers can take to retain their existing staff and improve job quality, including promoting good people management practices and focusing on areas such as wellbeing and work-life balance.

Our top 5 tips for proactive employers looking to improve retention and job satisfaction among their employees are:

1. Offer competitive salaries and benefits: Ensuring that employees feel fairly compensated for their work can go a long way in keeping them satisfied and motivated to stay with the company.

2. Foster a positive work culture: A positive work culture that values diversity, inclusion, and respect can help create a sense of belonging and improve employee satisfaction.

3. Offering opportunities for growth and development is crucial for employee retention. Employees who feel like they are learning and expanding their skills are more likely to stay with a company. Employers can invest in employee training and development programs to help employees build new skills and advance their careers. Providing a clear line of sight for growth and development can increase employee engagement and motivation. 

4. Encourage work-life balance: Allowing employees to have a healthy work-life balance can help reduce burnout and improve overall job satisfaction. Employers can support this by offering flexible work arrangements and promoting the use of annual leave.

5. Seek employee feedback and address concerns: Regularly soliciting feedback from employees and actively addressing their concerns can help build trust and show that the company values their input. Employers can use this feedback to make improvements and create a better work environment for all employees.
