You may be able to attract some of the best talent, but odds are you aren’t able to retain it. Up to 75% of workers are dissatisfied with their current job. They are passive job seekers – always on the lookout for something better.
In fact, they are so dissatisfied with their current job they’re actually considering freelancing – a gig that requires more hours and pays less and has none of the benefits most corporations offer.
I’ll repeat that – they would rather work harder and longer for less money and have no benefits than work for you.
So how do you prevent your top talent from becoming passive job seekers?
By providing an environment where they feel valued and appreciated, and most importantly, hiring the right people for the right job.
Toss out bias-prone selection methods such as resume screening, unstructured interviews and instead use professionals who employ personality and ability assessment methods to provide the right talent for your company.
Choosing or discarding a candidate because of what’s on their resume is a sure way to staff your company with “quality” candidates with great pedigrees, but that doesn’t mean they belong in your company.
Do yourself and your talent a favor and create an environment filled with people who work well together. Appreciate their contribution, and acknowledge it, and you’ll keep your best talent from passively looking elsewhere.
