One of, if not the most important factor in business success is the ability to hire, manage and retain talent. Now this isn’t just any talent, you need to find the right talent and keep them happy if you want to succeed. In fact, you can have the perfect product/service, strategy, and operations, but without the right people, you will continue to be average.
The War for Talent
The fight for talent over the past few years has exacerbated your need for people, and it pays to treat your employees right. This doesn’t mean overhauling your office to include nap pods and executive chefs. Sometimes, all you need to do is focus on the little things.
Something as small as remembering a birthday or anniversary, cutting out some of the paperwork in the hiring process, or explaining health insurance in human terms could go a long way to keeping and engaging employees.
Unfortunately for many organizations’ HR departments, it’s hard to “sweat the little things” in going above and beyond for your people because you’re too busy manually working on all of the necessary activities pertaining to hours, payroll, hiring, and benefits. You may think it’s all part of the job, but you got into HR/human capital management because you want to help people, not focus on paperwork.
