Darius Fisher wants your employees to be happy. In a recent Forges.com article the Status Labs president and co-founder laid out a plan to keep employees happy. His argument is that keeping an employee happy costs far less than trying to replace them.
According to ERE Media is costs 150 to 400 percent of an employee’s annual income to replace them, depending on their rank in the company.
But keeping them happy and satisfied in their jobs can be fairly easy. Fisher lays out three ways to accomplish this.
Everyone loves a little something extra. Whether it be a gift card to their favorite store or an extra day off. Find things that employees find desirable and offer then that as an incentive.
Fisher has given his employees Apple watches, trips to Costa Rica and home cleaning services.
Employees want recognition for their hard work. Acknowledgement is one of the cheapest ways to keep employees happy. If an employees completes a difficult task or closes a big sale they should be acknowledged company-wide for it. A simple email sent to the entire staff can do wonders for an employee’s moral.
Keep Employees in the Loop
Nobody wants to be kept in the dark. Employees need to know what is going on in their work environment. Fisher deals with this by sending out a monthly newsletter announcing new hires, new services being offered and any other peregrinate information. It is a simple yet effective way to keep employees informed.
