How to Increase Employee Retention and Loyalty

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Small businesses need their employees to care about their success. Loyal employees are ones who align their success and their goals with your company, and they’re the ones who love working for you and love the company itself. To keep these great employees, you need to reward them. This means improving their work environment and giving them the inclination to stay with you. Here are five suggestions to increase both employee loyalty and employee retention:

1.      Improve Their Work Environment

When someone enjoys the space where they work, they enjoy working more. This means having a work environment that is both attractive and safe. Make your office space bright, airy, and even try to add in plants so that the air remains fresh and clean. Have both safety protocols and workplace harassment protocols in place to make the work environment safer. This means that whether someone has been physical hurt or harassed, your employees know what action they can take.

2.      Offer a Better Break

Taking a break can make your employees more productive. Offer a better break by having free coffee, tea, and other snacks that boost energy for them always. Offer your employees a means to make or prepare their food from home to make their lunch break better. Encourage your employees to eat healthy and save money – two things that they will be grateful for.

3.      Ensure They Have a Future with You

No one wants to work a dead-end job, which is why upon hiring you need to make it clear to your employees that they, if they work hard, have a future with your company. This means promotions and pay increases will provided to those that have the right skills and commitment levels, and new, higher positions will always consider their current employees before they hire from the outside.

4.      Be Upfront

Being an honest, genuine employer will get you a lot of respect from your employees. This means having systems and protocols that are fair and work. It means treating your employees with respect, either by complimenting and rewarding them fairly or criticizing them constructively when they need it. It means paying your employees what they’re owed. Have your employees use a paystub generator so that your records are accurate and everyone believes that they’re being paid fairly.

5.      Reward Them

Promotions and pay rise increases should be standard rewards for committed, hard work. You can – and should – however, reward your employees in other ways as well. Bring in lunch for them every once in a while, host company parties, offer an extra day off to make a long weekend, or any other small reward you can think of. When your employees do a good job, make sure that they know that you recognize their achievements. Even something as small as an email thanking them for their hard work will go a long way.

Your employees are talented people who are making your business succeed. When these employees are great at what they do, you want to keep them around for as long as possible. Make a great work environment that your employees enjoy being in and one where they can succeed in, and you’ll keep the best employees in your company.
