Keeping an employee is one of the most important things as a business manager. When someone leaves it is tough to replace them and match someone just as good. For small business it is hard to do so because they aren't at the same level of a big business. You need to truly work around your employees and make them stay. They are valued in the company and you need them.

There are always the typical ways to do those type of things, but there are some uncommon ways. Offer a benefits and incentive package that fits the person. Be sure to listen and communicate. Make sure everyone is on the same page and employees know exactly what to do. Last of all, if you are running into trouble then hire a human resource person to take care of all of your problems.

The statistics show that in every salary field that it has been difficult and the cost of replacing is at 21.4% in all fields.

Many factors play into how to be a success business especially in a hard time. One solution is to be a good employer. You need to interact and control all of your employees. To almost piggy back that, make your employees feel valued, this is important when they feel they aren't making an impact on a company, because they really are.

The second part of this article is to create a productive atmosphere, get everyone involved, and keep them happy and working. Set an atmosphere that makes your employees at home. Make it a "family friendly" type of environment. When you get everyone involved they won't feel like they were left out. Listen to what they have to say and take notice. Finally, keep your employees happy, keep the standards high and keep them working toward those standards.

To build a better workplace, it starts with having the morale of your employees. Always have a little bit of fun with employees, ranging from TVs to even having a ping pong table. Make sure your employees aren't pushing the limits of doing to much work. There are some people that will become behind, don't keeping piling on the work for them. Make your staff a team and give them opportunities. Come together as one, and give some people chances to work their way up in the company.

Keeping your employees productive can be difficult to do sometimes. Two big things that could help would be offering some type of incentive to your employees(money,bonus) and to ask for your employees feedback. They are working for you after all, you need to find out what could lead to a problem. Other parts to this to this topic include respecting your employees and give training. Show respect to a person for the things they do for your company, and offering training teaches a person the basics of what to do. Along with that, provide support for your employees. Answer any questions they may have and offer any help possible. One of the final things you want to do is to make every thing run like a well oiled machine from top to bottom, from the head people on down.

Why Your Employees Are Losing Motivation - HBS Working Knowledge

Brian Kissel's comment, February 18, 2014 10:16 AM
A lot of managers ask themselves why people aren't motivated to work, well there is a lot behind it. One reason is because managers don't give inspiration or recognition to employees. A good job and a pat on the back can go a long way. Another thing is that you need to be a leader and coach as a manager. This to your staff and make adjustments based on what they say, keeping it the same will only hurt you. Another part to this is to communicate well and recognize when you are lacking performance. You can't let these 2 things slide by. Communication is key and you need to fix any problem that is leading to a poor performance. Being a leader means you have to stress teamwork. Get everyone involved and listen to what everyone has to say.

There are various ways to keep your employees happy at work. One way is to let your employees expand on their education and learn more about their profession. Another way is to offer office competitions. Whether is be big or small, have a little bit of a fun competition in the office. The third thing is to offer food. You can either have like a friday pizza day or a day where every employee brings in something to eat. The 4th part of this is to offer flexible hours, where employees can come in early and leave a earlier to avoid all the traffic. The 5th part of this is to have a party for special occasions(birthday's,holiday's). The final part of this is to listen and learn from what your employees have to say, you need them to be happy and to do a good job.
