XpertHR Explains How to Keep Top Performers From Leaving Employee engagement and performance are hot button issues because organizations with engaged employees typically have better financial and production performance than organizations with disengaged employees, says a new XpertHR  report . However, engaging and retaining top performers can be a struggle. A recent XpertHR survey found that 49% of HR professionals were very or extremely challenged when it came to increasing employee engagement, morale and satisfaction. The survey also found that 48% viewed retaining employees as very or extremely challenging; and 46% viewed aligning talent retention strategy with business objectives as very or extremely challenging. The unemployment rate stands at 4.0 percent and approximately 304,000 jobs were created in January 2019, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Job candidates have many choices and the tight labor market is a very real problem for HR professionals who are trying to attract and retain high quality applicants. Turnover that is avoidable (for example, because of poor management) and dysfunctional (losing employees that are top performers) can adversely affect an organization. Because a significant percentage of organizational or team output is often attributable to a top performer, a business should focus on retaining this type of employee. “Common reasons that drive employees to search for alternative employment include leaving because they are dissatisfied with their current employment situation; or a better job is available,” says Marta Moakley, JD, XpertHR Legal Editor. “Of particular concern is the loss of key employees - high performers and those with hard-to-replace skills.” Employers not only need to understand what is pushing employees to leave the organization, but also what is pulling them to stay. The promotion of employee engagement pulls employees to stay and thrive in their jobs. Employee engagement yields more than just employee satisfaction. An engaged employee is elevated to one who is committed to the organization and motivated to perform at sustainably high levels. “An employer with an engaged workforce can experience higher productivity, higher profitability, and lower absenteeism and turnover rates,” says Robert S. Teachout, SHRM-SCP, XpertHR Legal Editor. “Engagement is the key to retaining top performers and finding ways to retain their best employees remains a concern for most organizations.” While pay is an important factor in keeping high potential employees in place, engagement is a crucial step that employers can take to retain top performers.   Employers that want to improve employee engagement should follow these steps: Plan and prepare an engagement campaign Prepare and conduct an initial employee engagement survey Consider conducting an employee job satisfaction survey, but use caution, as engagement and job satisfaction do not necessarily correlate with each other. Roll out the engagement campaign Request and provide feedback to each employee on a regular basis Evaluate the engagement campaign For a copy of XpertHR’s Retaining Top Performers whitepaper, visit  XpertHR .

Clarity Benefit Solutions, a commuter benefits firm, lists the top employee benefits for attracting top talent in a tightened market. The good news is that across the country the job market is picking up, with unemployment at record lows. For employers, this means they must up the ante to attract and retain top talent. One way to stand out from the competition is to offer a spectacular benefits plan. Here are the top employee benefits for attracting top talent in a tightened market. Pay for professional memberships . Studies show that the number of companies that cover the cost of professional memberships has risen 20 percent over the past several years. For employers, this is a relatively inexpensive perk, with typical memberships running several hundred dollars per year. Employees will appreciate the monetary savings, and the fact they have networking opportunities available to them through membership in these organizations. Chances are, they will bring fresh new ideas back to the company. Offer legal assistance . While this benefit may not be top of mind for many companies, companies offering this benefit has nearly doubled recently. Legal assistance plans can work in many ways. A common scenario is to treat it like health insurance, with a minimal deduction from the employee's paycheck, coverage of common needs such as purchasing a house or handling debt collection, and employees can hire attorneys covered under the plan. Employers may also want to reach out to local attorneys. Ramp up wellness programs . Wellness programs have been realizing huge success. They show that the employer is invested in employees' well-being, both in and out of the workplace. There are so many wellness initiatives and programs, employers can really get creative. Paid gym memberships, yoga classes, weight loss programs, mental health services, and offering seasonal flu vaccines are some of the most popular initiatives. Allow employees to work remotely . Progressive employers realize that offering the option to work remotely, either from home or another location, makes employees happier, more productive, and more loyal to the company. Research shows that employees who work remotely are nearly half a day more productive than their colleagues in the office on a weekly basis.
