Fortunately, chances are slim you will experience an employee reading you a list of 10 things they hate about you or your organization. But just because you aren’t in one of the greatest 90s teen dramas, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care about how you’re turning off top performers. It’s hard to keep good people. It’s also easy to irritate people. As an HR professional, you know irritated and discontent people are more likely to move on. So how do we keep our best employees happy? It starts with respecting them enough not to make them unhappy.
We’ve heard it… have you? If you believe the experts (and we do), we’re currently amid the worst talent shortage since 2007. In 2007 the Blackberry was still the premier smart phone as the iPhone wasn’t introduced until mid-2007. If you and your colleagues don’t remember that you, then you probably don’t recall that talent shortage either.
