Last week a contact, who knows about the strengths work we do at Engaging Minds, sent me a newspaper clipping. The headline read:
“Firms hit by rise in staff turnover as workers get bored with their jobs”
The article was by Shruti Tripathi Chopra, City A.M.’s deputy news editor, who went on to say,
“A third (36 per cent) of HR directors have seen an increase in staff turnover in the last three years, according to a study by Robert Half UK. Boredom and frustrations with their current role or company (35 per cent), poor work-life balance (31 per cent) and stagnant career prospects (30 per cent) were the key reasons why employees chose to move on.”
But, we know it doesn’t have to be this way!
Firms can adopt strengths-based recruitment; done right it means you select people who are a great fit, are high performers, love their jobs and STAY. On average, our clients’ staff turnover halves within six months.
Watch one HR Director talk business benefits of the strengths approach. See what she says about staff turnover in Saga at 1.06 minutes into the video.
