Staff Retention –  How to Keep the Good Ones!

Staff retention is crucial for businesses of all sizes – it tends to improve customer satisfaction, sales and in-depth knowledge of the business. Frequently losing staff has a huge impact on businesses; the cost of their replacement, training and development, lost knowledge and uncertainty for employees. So as a business owner or manager it is important to do all you can to retain your employees.


The Negatives

There are lots of reoccurring reasons for leaving including; salary, lack of opportunity, commute and work-life balance. It is important to have regular meetings with your employees to gauge how they are feeling about their role. If there are any concerns work with them to amend them. It’s all about compromise.
