The last article went over these steps on how to end the revolving door syndrome:
1. Make People Feel Included
2. Use Both Constructive Feedback and Positive Reinforcement
Let’s Continue with Three More Tips to End the Revolving Door Syndrome:
3. Make the Environment as Productive as Possible
- Partner new employees with veteran staff members so they can learn from each other. In fact, this stops we vs. they syndrome.
- Find the team’s greatest assets and weakest links.
- Ask what team members need from each other and other departments in order to be successful. Then watch the team soar!
- Learn a technique called Be Direct with Respect®. It encourages people to tell others what they need to hear, not necessarily what they want to hear. Be Direct with Respect® is done in a positive manner to build rapport and relationships.
- Create a ‘boost the morale’ committee. Hold theme days, a talent contest, and pipe in music. Even more, find out what the department members consider fun!
4. Food Works to End the Revolving Door Syndrome
The diversity of the workforce has introduced us to a variety of customs and delicious food. As a consequence, this encourages people to learn about each other.
Take a coworker out to lunch when he does something special. Finally, most people appreciate being recognized for their birthday. Find out food allergies and preferences before you buy or make that cake!
5. Awards Make People Feel Great to End the Revolving Door Syndrome
Suggest giving awards. A few examples are for perfect attendance, the best attitude, the employee who grew professionally, or the safest department. Besides these, the most enthusiastic team, the most organized department/desk, or even the person who brings in the best snacks. These small gestures help people feel special and invested in their place of work.
Companies must motivate employees or fall behind in the marketplace. Do what my clients do to end the revolving door syndrome today!
