“Attract, develop, retain good performers” is at the heart of almost every organization’s needs and every manager’s job. Yet, too often we ignore these activities until top performers start leaving or we cannot find enough people to grow our organization.
What are some of the main reasons people leave? Most are unchanged over the past decade: problems with one’s supervisor, lack of opportunity, limited or non-existent career development, poor management practices. Many people feel over-burdened and under-appreciated, as cutbacks in recent years have often meant long work hours.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
While management fads come and go, basics of good employee management do not change significantly. The ‘golden rule’ has not been significantly improved upon: Treat others as you want to be treated. If you want financial success, improve your ability to attract, develop, and retain good performers with these simple concepts. The time you spend to implement and maintain these practices is less than the time you will have to spend to correct the problems created when these are absent.
