As the economy turns and the once vast pools of hires start to dry, it’s now more important than ever to keep your top talent happy. Maintaining the best hires that your recruitment strategy has drawn in is a solid strategy for maintaining productivity and future-proofing the success of your organization. So, how do you make it hapen?
Consider allowing more personal expression into the workplace. Although an admitted time sink, companies are experimenting with opening up sites like Facebook and Twitter—often for business, networking related purposes. Companies are also providing time for music and exercise, finding that the resources they’re expending catering to high-performing employees is more than worth the investment.
Above all, remember that a plethora of available talent doesn’t necessarily translate into increased productivity, and ultimately higher revenue for your business. Taking the time to plan a thoughtful, fun, creative, rewarding workplace is a great strategy for truly utilizing emerging graduates with a lot to offer your organization.
