Executives must take responsibility to stop the revolving door of employee turn-over
TORONTO, June 26, 2014 /CNW/ - In an economic climate where organizations must strategically balance their budgets while satisfying their employees, a recent workplace survey generated by Lannick Group of Companies reveals that while businesses in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) have come a long way, there is still progress to be made. Many employers assume all hiring flaws come from unreliable individuals, but companies are failing to address the real reasons why recruitment and retention are on-going issues.
"The survey shows a severe disconnect between what employers know – that talent attraction and retention is vitally important to the strength of a company – and what employers are willing to do to address their workplace satisfaction issues," said Peter Jeewan, President & CEO of Lannick Group. "Companies must be willing to invest time and money in the unique skills that every individual brings to the organization. A happy and dedicated workforce will ultimately increase productivity and excel your business."
Management and executive-level employers across all industries in the GTA identified workplace trends faced by Canadian Companies today.
Key survey findings include:
Canadian companies are taking advantage of the current economic climate: almost 30 per cent of executives are lessening their measures to retain talent simply because the market is currently employer versus employee-driven. The time is now for employers to take action – a happy employee is an effective employee.
What can organizations do to strengthen their business by addressing workplace satisfaction?
