Organizations everywhere are putting the focus on employee retention. This is not a surprising move with all of the statistics coming out regarding the Great Resignation. For example, a news report from NPR shared, “As pandemic life recedes in the U.S., people are leaving their jobs in search of more money, more flexibility and more happiness. Many are rethinking what work means to them, how they are valued, and how they spend their time. It’s leading to a dramatic increase in resignations — a record 4 million people quit their jobs in April alone, according to the Labor Department.”
Keeping our talent is a top priority, which means employee development and engagement are top priorities. According to a recent SHRM survey, 33% of employees want better career advancement opportunities. Part of that lies in knowing that an organization is investing in its employees’ performance development and equipping the employees with the tools and skills to grow. Additionally, organizations need to give their managers an easy-to-use tool that allows them to efficiently coach, celebrate, and engage with their teams. It is essential to provide the opportunity to our managers to connect with employees by sharing the right tools.
Consistent, clear communication, and high engagement go hand-in-hand. One cannot exist without the other. When employees know exactly what they do well and what they need to improve on to be successful, they are going to be much more engaged than if they are constantly second-guessing where they stand. Additionally, “employees who strongly agree that their managers helped them set performance goals are 69% more engaged compared to employees who did not have managers help them” (Gallup). Having regular, meaningful development focused conversations is going to help us retain our employees. It is time to equip our managers with a tool that will make employee development an easy priority to invest in.
