Now MORE than ever:
Current staff needs to be recognized
Recognize efforts – If you haven’t already, find out which form of recognition works for each member of your team – and do it! Surely, they’re accomplishing goals and pushing your business onward. Recognize them in an appropriate way – FOR THEM. Even though the employment market is in the midst of a wild change, it is always important to treat your staff well. I challenge you to make recognition a continuous part of your company operations. (we’ve got lots of great ideas on how to recognize your staff, reach out for more!)
Hire better Stop ghosting candidates – return phone calls, update candidates on their status – good or bad. Stress levels are high, anxiety is rampant. By providing a timely response, you can reduce or eliminate anxiety on the part of the candidate. Remember how stressful looking for work is?!?
