Talent retention. One of the greatest challenges companies have been facing the past decade as a new generation of workers seek employers that offer the best opportunity, flexibility, culture and perks. Businesses have tried renovating office spaces to offer more open, collaborative spaces. They’ve tried special incentives and perks like Fridays off in the summer, unlimited vacation time, and social activities to increase bonding. Post-pandemic, companies are navigating the increased demand for more permanent remote work options.

Management is a learned skill that often requires self-education – most companies don’t train managers to manage. So, when it comes to figuring out how to evaluate employees then nurture and coach them to drive performance or develop a path for advancement, managers can struggle to determine the right approach.
Fall is here and with questions surrounding a potential surge in COVID cases with colder weather, more people forced indoors, kids returning to school and eased mask mandates, companies are re-evaluating (again) their timeline and policies regarding a return to the office, travel, meetings and more. As we enter the 4th quarter and plan for 2022, many leaders are struggling to determine the best next steps for their teams.
Customer Success Team Member Juliana Withers hosted October’s Truvelop User Community Lunch and Learn about Putting the Focus on Retention.

Organizations worldwide are facing the reality of ‘The Great Resignation’: a mass exodus of employees. The pandemic forced many organizations to adopt remote workforces for the first time. With this transition, many employees are now exposed to a new sense of flexibility and opportunity. They are reevaluating what work really means to them and how they are valued.

Managers can get frustrated with underperforming team members, but in a lot of cases, the team member isn’t even aware of their deficiencies. It is important that when completing evaluations, managers include comments and notes to provide context and opportunities for improvement. Communication shouldn’t stop there. If a manager sees room for improvement, they need to frequently communicate the issues with the employee to monitor progress.
Going into November, we’re shifting our focus to a theme of “Giving Thanks to Give It Your All.” Whether we are sharing gratitude for our Team Members, our Managers, or our organizations, by reflecting on all that we appreciate about our team or our environment, we can push through the final stretch of the year with new inspiration and motivation. Gratitude can positively shift our whole perspective, which is why we want to focus on creative ways to practice appreciation and giving thanks in our day-to-day interactions.
As always, we would love to hear your ideas and feedback! Please reach out to us at email@example.com to share.
