In this chaotic world, a business can only survive if it can attract the “best and the brightest” to its workforce. It can only thrive if it continues to grow and develop, while retaining, the talents of its workforce.

When studies are conducted to find out what employees value in a job, career (opportunities and development) always appears among the top three, typically before the expected answers of pay and benefits.

Career Systems International's research in career development has shown that managers can create a development environment and in doing so, make a huge impact in retaining and engaging their talent. What employees really want is a relationship with their managers, whereby they can have open, honest, two-way conversations about their abilities, interests, and options. They want managers to listen to their perspectives, offer their points of view, and provide encouragement. Continue Reading.

Client Success Story

“Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em® is a fully integrated part of our “Unleash Talent” cultural belief. Every new manager who joins our organization goes through the program during orientation and our engagement scores continue to average at least six points higher than our market peer group.

Tip of the Month

Give the gift that keeps on giving this holiday season – your time! Carve out 15 minutes a week from your schedule and ask one of your employees, “What makes you stay” and “What might make you leave?” It’s called a Stay Interview and it’s one of the most powerful tools in the busy manager’s arsenal to help drive positive engagement in the work place. Listen to the answer and find a way to build in more of what makes them stay and minimize what might make them leave.
