In the meantime, keep reading for a few tips on how to retain great employees.

Understand that you're not the only one who can make important decisions within the company.

  • It can be human nature to want to feel appreciated. 
  • If your employees have ideas on how to improve your company, hear them out and take them seriously.
  • If you use one of their ideas, give them credit for it.

Realize it's a good thing when your employees want to grow within your company.

  • Start fresh from the beginning by having any potential employees identify their career goals to you. This allows you to see if their goals align with your company's structure. 
  • You can have a better idea of whether or not this person will be happy realistically at your company long term.

Be the help your employees need to grow professionally.
Many employees, millennials especially, can tend to stick with a company longer if they feel there is a “ladder to climb.” In other words, employees can become bored or unmotivated if they feel stuck in the same position for too long, so create a way in which they can move up within your company. Keep them motivated by providing incentives such as yearly raises or more vacation time.

You shouldn't be the only one who is allowed to express yourself at work openly.

  • By “open culture,” we mean allow your employees to express their ideas openly and honestly and you should do the same in return. 
  • Allowing everyone to be themselves makes for a much more comfortable work environment.

Micromanaging can be one of the quickest ways to lose a good employee.

  • Micromanaging employees can lead to employee turnover quickly. 
  • If you feel the need to micromanage an employee, then that employee probably wasn't a great fit for your company in the first place. 
  • Coach your employees by giving them the authority they need in order to complete their job tasks successfully. 
  • Make yourself available to them if and when they have questions.
