We had Cara on the Porch to talk about employee retention. As an author and speaker around this topic, she had a LOT to share with us. Here are very tactical things leaders can do to help retain talent right now:
1. Increase pay by at least 5.4%. That was the rate of inflation this last year. The hardest year of most of our lives. This isn’t a raise – it’s simply keeping up with the cost of goods.
2. Prune job responsibilities for teammates. There is no more room to “do more with less.” We need to be clear about what priorities matter the most and what we need from our team on a week-to-week basis after we prune.
3. Embrace technology. Forward-thinking organizations are using technology where it saves time and human energy. Don’t fall into the trap of “robots are taking over people’s jobs.” Robots are taking jobs that humans don’t want! This is a creative way to raise the pay of the staff that you do need.
