How do you make your company more attractive so that your current employees stay with you for the long term

How do I make my company more attractive to employees?

This is a question many professionals working in the HR industry ask themselves. If you’ve thought about it, just know it’s a common theme which has a very common solution. To put it briefly, it’s all in the employee relations and how you manage them. 

Let’s dive more into the subject. What does it mean to create and sustain healthy employee relations?

  1. #ShowRespect

Show that you treat your employees with respect. It’s important for people to know they are valued beyond the job description and to feel that they are important for the company. Empower them and make them feel like they’re part of a bigger picture, which will lead to your team feeling more motivated. 

  • #BeTransparent

According to Glassdoor, increased transparency creates trust between employers and employees, improves morale, lowers job-related stress, and contributes to employee happiness and overall performance. Even more, when people know what they get into, they are more likely to take action. 

  • #BeCommunicative

What makes future employees take your company into consideration is the way you act in a conversation. If you are responsive and communicative, they tend to approach more topics in more depth. The best-performing employees tend to seek companies that encourage efficient and constant communication.

  • #BuildaBrand

Make sure your company stands for something, it has a set of values and a mission. In time, this will lead to attracting likeminded employees. People associate with brands they believe in. 

  • #CompetitiveBenefits

Even though the benefits a company offers are not everything when it comes to a job, they play an important role when people make an important move. Benefits and salary packages should at least meet the industry standards, but for extra results, you could also look more into the perks that might be attractive for your target.  

As Lawrence Bossidy said “I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people. At the end of the day, you bet on people, not on strategies”, employees are the one resource you should always focus on. 

Besides taking into consideration these five pillars, you can start looking for aspects that might make your company #StandOut from the crowd. 

Do your employees stay with your company for a long term?
