“Nothing happens until something moves.” — Albert Einstein
“What do you have without pride of workmanship? Just a job, to get some money. There’s not much joy in that.” — W. Edwards Deming
“Have a mind that’s open to everything but attached to nothing.” — Wayne Dyer
“Life without meaningful work quickly collapses into the other aspects of life.” — Goodwill Industries
Rather than ‘fill positions,’ continuously recruit talent from within and without. Diverse, creative people that stimulate your thinking and challenge the status quo. Go to events and work the crowds. Pair a potential recruit with a current employee, as a cultural mentor. Ask for employee referrals – which result in the highest first-year retention rate. Create a website with listings. And stay in conversation with employees, to learn about sources of dissatisfaction when it’s possible to remedy them. Surround yourself with capability and commitment, and work will be the pleasure it’s meant to be.
Can you name the factors that rank higher than pay, in employee satisfaction surveys?
