How To Keep Good Talent - 5 Tips

got talent


We all struggle to find ways to motivate staff as we strive to create engaging and empowering work environments. The last thing employees should feel is stuck or unable to fulfil their potential at work.


According to a LaunchPad Recruits blog post by Anthony Tattersall 

"Hiring the best is doomed to failure unless you can keep them engaged and invest in their development". 


It might be the case with many talented candidates that feel neglected at work. In our experience, good talent is paramount to success and we strive to help both candidates and clients find the best balance. 


Some myths we should let go off...


1. Some roles are just about the pay and commission.


Well actually, research shows that money is a motivator at work but in a different way: employers should pay employees enough money to take the issue of money off the table and putting the work in; otherwise, they will not feel motivated. Regardless of how much we earn, a sense of belonging and appreciation will go a long way. 


2. Candidates that are not a good personality fit are no good for my business. 


It is difficult to find the ideal personality fit. If you are looking for talent you're probably making this a very big thing which is how it should be - employees should love the culture they work in. But if you've already hired staff that don't fit in anymore after one or two months it will be up to you to create the right environment for them. If you do, you'll be surprised how much value these candidates can bring you. 


Now that we have discarded some important myths, here is what we would recommend: 


1. Listen to the employees and their needs

2. Ask what can be improved

3. Create a nurturing work environment that makes employees feel comfortable at work. 

4. Make employees feel like they could discuss issues with you and you would resolve them.

5. Treat people equally and fairly.
