- During this time of compounding problems of the skilled labor shortage, more retirements and the “Great Resignation,” companies need to develop a continual talent acquisition strategy for ongoing recruiting. Leverage employee referral programs, social media, and recruiters to always be looking for top candidates.
- The best thing you can do for retention and recruiting is to develop a healthy and robust company culture. The stats Bryce mentioned around a boss’ impact on an employee’s mental health is staggering. Take time to get to know the person behind the employee.
- Finally, leadership needs to take the time to ask the hard questions of their team and then take the needed and appropriate action to solve them.
