According to a recent article in The Tennessean by Doug Claffey, the CEO of Workplace Dynamics, over 37% of employees looked for better jobs elsewhere – up from 35% in 2014. It goes without saying that high-performing organizations want to reduce turnover. So the natural question is – what makes employees want to stay?
According to Mr. Claffey, “It’s when organizations focus on what really matter: connection, alignment and execution. Healthy organizations thrive when people feel connected.” It is senior leaders’ responsibility to ensure that this connection occurs – that “employees understand where the company is going and how it is going there.”
The article offers some great insight into how to form organizations that foster this connection. The full article can be read here.
