COMPANIES WORK OVERTIME TO KEEP TOP PERFORMERS

87% of employers are concerned about losing employees to new opportunities.

How are they trying to enhance retention efforts?

Increasing salaries or bonuses 55%
Allowing employees to work remotely 45%
Enhancing recognition efforts 39%

Ready, set, retain!

Follow these tips to help keep your team together:

Make it public

Recognize great efforts during meetings or in team emails.

Add compensation

A small cash bonus or gift makes being recognized even sweeter.

Spread praise

Let staff recognize each others’ great work with special recognition programs.

Give the gift of time

A reward for a half or even a full day off can incentivize staff to go above and beyond.
