Here are five strategies to retaining your best talents based on the findings of one of Singapore’s leading employment agencies: Jobplus.
Have a purpose that is bigger than your company
Make a difference globally. Workers who deduce meaning from their employment are more prone to working hard and being loyal to their firm. A mission of corporate social responsibility is particularly enticing with Generation Y employees.
Aggressively pursue great culture
Focussing on your workplace is a simple method to influencing culture. Everything ranging from colours, artwork, music and furniture layout will create the tone for the type of behaviour you want to generate. Make the workplace a fun place to be in by formulating meaningful team-building activities. Potluck lunches and happy hours are also productive platforms to connect your team together personally.
Make your space matter
Affording a wide range of spaces and surfaces proves that you acknowledge that not everyone functions in the same manner and that you are willing to make alterations to accommodate your group. For example, you can offer standing desks and lounge settings in tandem with the usual desk setting.
Recognize the importance of remote work capabilities
Workers value the chance to work from home or from a coffee shop and deviate away from the structured nine-to-five schedule.
Demonstrate that work is part of your life — not your entire life
In today’s wireless era, it is tough to truly escape from work. Ensure that your workers comprehend that the firm appreciates them and wants them to be satisfied in all areas of their lives, even if that entails taking nights and weekends off. You can also endorse workers to incorporate personal aspects of their lives at work, such as bringing their pet into the workplace or enabling an occasional visit from families.

3. “You’d be amazed how many people will have email addresses like ‘pornstar69’ ‘sexeebeeatch420’ or some other dumb user name for their gmail account. If you can’t spend 5 min creating a firstname.lastname account, don’t be shocked when you don’t get the job.”
