Grateful Employees

CEOs are asking “how can we increase employee retention and engagement?”

Maybe that’s the wrong question.

What if you asked: “What are our employees grateful for?

How would your employees respond to these statements?   
1.     I am respected by my boss  
2.     My manager helps me to learn and grow  
3.     I have the tools and the necessary training to succeed  
4.     I’m motivated to do my best  
5.     I trust my manager and the company’s senior executives  
6.     The company deals with employee issues honestly and fairly  
7.     I am valued for my ideas, my talents and my diversity  

People stay where they are wanted, respected and appreciated.  If you answer “Yes” to five or more – CONGRATULATIONS – your employees are grateful for more than just their paycheck.

What does this have to do with hiring?
