3 Tips for Improving Employee Retention & Increasing Longevity

2018 marks another entrance into the Eagles Talent Ten Year Club. Our newest inductee: Sheldon Senek, Eagles Talent’s fearless leader and Executive Vice President. Since 2008 Sheldon has helped shape the vision of the company by becoming a leader in the Speakers Bureau Industry–currently serving on the Board of Governers for IASB (International Association of Speakers Bureaus). Sheldon joins the likes of Jessica Wysocki, Bill Lee, and countless other ETSB employees who have remained loyal team members for over a decade.

In recent years, longevity in the workplace has become scarce–with employees under twenty five reportedly seeking a new job every two and a half years. In today’s fast-paced world, it is no surprise that employee turnover rates have increased significantly in the past decade. Contrary to popular belief, Human Resource professionals and job recruiters actively look for applicants who have held the same job for at least four to five years when filling an open position.

Employee retention is beneficial to both the employee and the organization. An employee with five years of experience under his/her belt has a deep understanding and knowledge of the complexities of an organization, its customers, and products/services.

Here are 3 tips for increasing employee longevity:

1) Encourage a healthy work/life balance.

Whether it’s providing a generous PTO policy or by opportunities to work from home, it is important to relay the following message to employees: your time is important. Since the rise of smart-phones, it can feel as if work is inescapable at times. Be sure to encourage your employees to make time for themselves. Click here for a list of speakers that are dedicated to helping you flourish in the workplace without putting a hinder on your social life.

2) Offer employees growth options.

When accepting a job position, prospective employees are no longer solely interested in good benefits. Polls show that 87% of millennials say career growth opportunities are at the top of their list of deal-breakers. By providing employees with opportunities to expand and grow their role over time, an organization can improve their retention rate and increase employee longevity. Click here for a list of speakers that can help equip you with the tools to provide your employees with growth opportunities and overall expand your business.

3) Celebrate success!

Everyone wants to feel appreciated and recognized for their hard work and dedication. Create an office culture that celebrates accomplishments and rewards significant achievements. This will create a positive atmosphere among employees, reduce stress, and increase productivity tenfold. Click here for a list of speakers that can help you craft and implement a reward system for your organization and in turn improve your office’s atmosphere.

Adapt Fast in a Competitive Marketplace

In an ever-changing and somewhat amorphous marketplace, having a solid idea or product is no longer enough to stand out. In order for an organization to succeed it must be able to adapt quickly through micro-innovations.

According to Venture Capitalist and NY Times Bestselling Author Josh Linkner, many times these micro-innovations result in failure. However, these failures present an opportunity to learn, adapt, and achieve great results along the way.

Today’s Tip: Adapt fast and remain responsive.

In the following video, Josh uses the Audi / BMW billboard wars to demonstrate the value in adaptation and the importance of responsiveness.

In Memoriam: Captain Alan Bean, The Fourth Man to Walk on The Moon

This past weekend marked the passing of the last living crew member of the Apollo 12–American Hero, Captain Alan Bean.

Captain Bean became the fourth person to walk on the moon in November 1969 as apart of the Apollo 12 mission. Before his retirement in 1981, Captain Bean helped establish 11 world records and was awarded two NASA distinguished service medals. After NASA, Captain Bean turned to speaking and painting as forms of expression to convey the experiences that only a handful of men, including himself, can claim. Below is a picture of one his masterpieces featuring a special message from Captain Bean for our Eagles Talent team:

“To my friends at Eagles – keep reaching for your own special stars—Alan Bean Apollo 12”

From all of us at Eagles Talent, we send our deepest condolences to Captain Bean’s family, friends, and all of those who were fortunate enough to know him. Captain Bean inspired generations of Americans through his impressive accomplishments in the Space Race, and his artwork will continue to inspire future generations to reach for the stars. Captain Bean, you will be missed.
