Reduce the Risk of Losing Employees

“By not understanding what their employees are running from, and what they might gravitate to, company leaders are putting their very businesses at risk.” McKinsey & Company

The Great Engagement is a call to action to reduce this risk of losing employees.

Do you know what your employees are running from? What might they gravitate towards? Is your business at risk of losing employees?

As a leader you may think you know the answers but, according to McKinsey &
Company, managers and employees do not agree on what’s the most important factors for staying at an organization.

Top three factors employees cited as reasons for quitting were that they didn’t feel:

  • Valued by their organizations (54 percent) or
  • Valued by their managers (52 percent) or
  • A sense of belonging at work (51 percent).

Tips to Take Action

As an organization, by understanding the reasons why employees are leaving or would even consider leaving, you can take effective actions to not only retain but also attract potential employees.

  • How do you as a leader show you value your employees?
  • What does the organization do in terms of making people feel they belong and are valued?
  • Is your organization struggling with effectively engaging employees?
