Your employees are your most valuable asset. They are the resource that gets work done, they bring creativity and innovation to the team, and without them you wouldn’t be able to achieve your goals. So it almost goes without saying, you need your employees to stay and to perform. Certainly any manager will tell you that constant turnover is something you don’t want happening on your team. And yet, employees leave. For various reasons, individuals choose to leave a team or an organization. As a manager, your challenge is to identify what factors will cause each person to stay, and then to build these factors into each person’s work situation. When you know the factors that will influence each person’s decision to stay and perform, you have an advantage. You can work with your team to ensure the right things are in place, and therefore create a work situation that would cause every team member to enjoy their jobs and want to stay.
