A 5-employee shop is not necessarily going to need all the exact same HR products and services as a business employing hundreds of people. But if you have any employees at all, you have HR needs. But how much do you need, or how little? Sometimes the hardest part can just be knowing where to start!
Just like the golden rule says, “Treat others how you want to be treated”. Employee retention is really just that simple. What you give is what you get back in return. Bottom line: you have to value your employees. To value your employees means that you hold them with the highest regard and you see and respect their worth. Employees also excel and do their very best when they know their employer is in full support of helping them attain their goals and dreams. As a result, they will be in full support of your vision and values as an organization which creates a win/win. These 6 steps will help you hang on to the people that help keep your lights on and your company doors open.
