If you want to have a door of opportunity and possibilities, this article will teach you steps to achieve this.
In his latest book, the Co-Founder of LinkedIn and millionaire Reid Haffman explains that if you own a business and want to be successful and be a top earner, you must learn how to Recruit,Manage and Retain employees or team members in your organization.
To do this, you must follow the following steps:
- Greet your members with warm Enthusiasm
- Welcome your new member to the existing team
- Express and impart hopes that they will be with your organization for many years
- Reassure loyalty to team member(s)
- Introduce them to your support/HR team
- Interview them to see if they are a fit to your organization and tell them that they will
be on probation for 90 days after which they can quit or get fired for any reason.
This is the modern employment experience. Tell them they are expected to be loyal in absence of job security or
professional development, but are free to leave anytime a better opportunity appears!
This will give them the confidence and dispel dishonest that exists in many organizations.
Therefore invest more in your company and avoid the pitfalls of losing employees or team members.
The above statement creates long term relationships that is lacking in many businesses and fold up.
Statistics by Gallop, indicate that many companies have unsatisfied workers because of disloyalty from both parties. Reid Hoffman, states that a “business without loyalty is a business without long-term goals and thinking.”
As a results, there is no investing for tomorrow,hence the company folds up for ever!
How to avoid this….
Start rebuilding employer-employee relationship in order to retain good and hard working team members. This is called Alliance Building. It becomes a “tour of duty company” with good allies who have mutual interest and well focused. Their contribution adds value to your company by them investing in the success of the company.
What are the benefits to your company?
There is mutual benefit to the Alliance where both parties “risk” commuting to each other for a long term investment in the view of bigger payouts.
To achieve this, you company should have a specific and well defined mission or goal with a time horizon tour of duty where team members commit to sign and agree to your company’s blue print.
In your blue print, explain the specific benefits they will get for example, excellent marketing skills,building network alliances with clients and business to business communications, liberty to leave for green pastures(this helps you to build that personal and everlasting relationship that convinces them to stay with the company). Then the retention rate increases with one goal- transforming lives and enhancing personal portfolio of skills and experiences.
In the long term,the company is transformed to a big and viable organization as a result of employee/team members accomplishing the specific goals that subsequently improves the business. Every members works smarter because they have mastered the blue print and see meaning and aspiration of the company’s mission.
