  • Positive work environment: If the working environment is not positive, you do not expect your workers to be positive. It is important that you create a culture of positivity. It should begin in you.
  • Provide reasonable benefits: Turn-over rates are high because you give small salaries and benefits. You should realize that you need to provide reasonable benefits so your employees have something to look forward.
  • Develop skills: Learning should be continuous. Your employees can be more when you give them the chance. Stagnation will destroy your organization. Think of training and mentoring.
  • Recognition and rewards: Employees need inspiration. The benefits and the compensation are not enough. You have to consistently recognize and reward those who are exemplary.

The things mentioned above are a good start. Do not hesitate to empower your employees because it will translate to productivity and eventually profits.
