1. Provide your employees with the proper job training—and don’t stop.
Successful onboarding is only a step in the process of helping your employees develop their skills. Employees are far more likely to stay with the company when you provide opportunities for professional development and a path for career growth. This helps you build the talent and teams needed to deliver on your mission.
2. Focus on strengths.
Research from the Gallup Organization found that building on employee strengths is much more effective than trying to improve weaknesses. Individuals who use their strengths are six times more likely to be engaged in their job. Find out more in the report State of the American Workplace.
3. Help everyone feel valued.
Help your team members see the value they bring to the organization, and make sure they know you see it too. Engage team members in finding solutions instead of simply providing directions. Trust them with challenges. When you create a culture based on respect and individual value, it helps you, your team, and your bottom line.
