It’s been at least 15 years since I first heard the words ‘the war for talent. Yet, it becomes ever more true by the year.
Globally, the population is ageing and today’s job market demands higher levels of technical and/or specialist skills. This talent war is not going away anytime soon.
We know that, Phil. So what do we do about it?
Here are 4 areas to re-evaluate in your business:
>> Clearly define your company’s value proposition and culture. Your staff need to feel your authenticity about your culture, your mission, your products and services. Show how you can make a real difference in the world.
>> Understand your staff. Don’t assume. Do all you can to get to the bottom of how your staff feel about the business, your processes, salaries, culture, and their place in it. You need to understand the real issues that could or would drive them away from your business. Times are changing rapidly, so even if you feel that you have a good handle on these things, don’t take them for granted.
>> Demonstrate that you value them … or someone else will. Make sure you take time to celebrate successes, recognise accomplishments, provide career opportunities, and update commission schemes and plans.
>> Invest in and fine-tune your training. The post-pandemic world requires different skills, like selling via Zoom et al. As requirements change you must evolve the training you provide. With an increase in remote or hybrid working, following up on training is even more difficult, but even more important.
These four points only scratch the surface.
