One of the things that I’m most proud of in running CorpNet is how long our staff has been with us. Many were there at the start. Our turnover is incredibly low. Clearly, we’re doing something right to keep our employees happy! Here are a few of the ways we do that.
1. Make the Job Fit the Person
Sure, when we first post a job description, we are looking for a specific set of skills in our next hire. But as we get to know each individual, their strengths begin to shine. We look for ways to enhance what they’re already passionate about. So if Katie in our Sales department is also adept at managing social media, we’re happy for her to take that over.
We want our staff to love what they do, as well as to be able to take on more of what they really enjoy doing. We don’t let those initial job descriptions limit them.
2. Implement Their Ideas
Around the office, our team knows if they have an idea on how we can run CorpNet smarter, they can bring it to me or Phil. And we don’t just smile blankly and say, “Uh huh. Great idea. We’ll take it into consideration.”
We actually use our employees’ ideas for improving productivity, marketing better, and overall being a smarter company. They appreciate being a part of the brains behind the company.
