A number of articles have talked about employees becoming less engaged over the last 12-18 months. Other studies and polls have indicated that some very high percentages of people, if they have a chance, will go to work somewhere else. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in Feb/Mar/April more workers voluntarily quit their jobs than were discharged. Based on the article in the Puget Sound Business Journal called Employers now worry about losing key workers it looks like that may actually be happening! If companies are NOT paying attention to what may be happening in the workplace, this could be happening to them. It is a great time to assess departments so managers can actually get to know their people better and let employees know that someone IS paying attention to them. It is a great opportunity to look at…and DO SOMETHING about succession planning. It is a great opportunity to pick a POINT in time to CHECK on how people are doing as leaders and managers and actually do something to help them. Our assessments can do all of those things.
