Key Factors for Retaining Employees

Key Factors for Retaining Employees:

• Provide growth opportunity: have goals and share them.

• Give feedback (positive and critical): be clear about expectations and achievements.

• Be aware that the manager wants to advance; as long as such growth can be achieved in the company, the environment will be stable.

• Don’t forget that a career path, even in a good company, is not everything; Americans are very sensitive when it comes to earning opportunities.

• If a similar position with higher compensation level is offered at another firm, you will most likely lose your employee.

• Don’t be shy about sharing your experience and questions with other professionals – most managers are more than willing to help with advice.

Ask professional recruiting firms, like JR Bechtle & Co., for recommendations and check with organizations like the International Chambers of Commerce.
