Struggling to keep top talent in today’s modern workplace? It’s not as complicated as you might think. According to recent guest Joe Mull, author of Employalty, employers must make a commitment to three essential aspects of a “destination” workplace: providing the ideal job, prioritizing meaningful work, and being a great boss. Simple yet powerful, these focus areas are the key to lasting retention. Listen in and learn how you can take real steps to ignite commitment and loyalty among your people.
Employalty is a portmanteau of the words “employer,” “loyalty,” and “humanity.”
Social science research shows that organizations can attract and retain dedicated employees by focusing on three key areas: “ideal job,” “meaningful work,” and “great boss.”
Today’s employees are recalibrating the type of work they want to do and how that work fits into their lives.
Business owners and leaders need to embrace a mindset shift — that there is no staffing shortage, but rather that there is a “great jobs” shortage.
People generally do a great job when they believe they have a great job.
The ideal job is made up of compensation, workload, and flexibility.
People believe that their work is meaningful if they find purpose, use their strengths, and experience belonging.
This “great boss” factor is made up of three dimensions: trust, coaching, and advocacy.
