As employment agencies specializing in human resource and other such Human Resources executive recruiters are likely all too aware of, rates of employee retention in the long term have become quite problematic in recent years, no matter what industry you might be looking at here in the United States. After all, the data surrounding this issue more than supports the concern that is felt by so many employment agencies specializing in human resource and outplacement companies here in the United States.
For one thing, millennials in particular are leaving their jobs – and are more willing to leave their jobs – with a frequency that has not been seen before by past generations – but a trend that is likely to continue among future generations as well. After all, up to 60% of all millennial workers currently involved in the workforce have stated that they would quickly jump at the chance to take a better job if they thought it was going to offer them better opportunities. And back in the June of the year of 2015, now a few years in the past, more than two and a half million people here in the United States had voluntarily left their jobs. In the years that have passed us by since, it can only be assumed that more and more people have continued to leave their places of work for one reason or another.
As employment agencies specializing in human resource can all too easily attest to, there are a number of reasons that people are leaving their jobs in search of better ones (or when offered better ones) here in the United States. For one thing, many people currently in the workforce, no matter what industry or part of it they might be working in, simply do not feel that they are being encouraged to do their best possible work or provided with the necessary support systems needed to succeed in whatever workplace it is that they are a part of. In fact, the data that has been gathered on this subject more than backs up this claim, as it shows that only around 20% of all employees actually feel that their superiors do a good or even a sufficient job of encouraging them to work to their full potential. For most people, working in an unmotivated environment has proven to be something that is considerably difficult – and something that is likely to lead them to seek work in another workspace as well, in the hopes that a new place of work will have better leadership and motivation, something that many employment agencies specializing in human resource have seen in their employees.
Fortunately, there are a number of steps that just about any given workplace will be able to take to rectify this problem. For one thing, simply putting some sort of employee recognition program into place is likely to have a considerable result. After all, employee recognition programs have been found to be hugely successful in workplaces all thought the country, as various employment agencies specializing in human resource and various restructuring consulting firms will very much be able to attest to. After all, up to 86% of all the companies that have put such programs into place in recent years have found success in them, citing a marked improvement in overall employee happiness after the program was put into place, something that is likely to translate into better employee engagement and even a better quality of employee work that is produced.
Improvement in the on boarding process and even in the hiring process is likely to be hugely beneficial as well, again something that all kinds of employment agencies specializing in human resource will be able to back up as a true claim. After all, an employee who is carefully selected and well trained for the role that they are being given is far more likely to find considerable success than the employee who is not. Here in the United States, instituting such measures in addition to employee recognition programs is likely to have a considerable impact.
