Companies are always looking to improve employee retention. Every employee represent an enormous investment on behalf of a company and when a good employee leaves it can be a big blow to a company’s morale, bottom line, and brain trust.
I reached out to as many CEO’s as I could to learn what they do to create a work culture that improves employee retention.
Establish Core Values
World Wide Technology (WWT) established a set of core values years ago which are the foundation of everything we do. We also developed an integrated management and leadership curriculum that ensures everyone understands our vision, mission, values and the behaviors expected at all levels of our organization. Our values and culture are key to our recruiting process. We use them to help recruit, manage and motivate our employees. We also use them to help coach out the employees who don’t fit our culture. Our goal is to have (100%) highly engaged and inspired employees. We believe highly engaged and inspired employees will engage and inspire our customers, partners and community. We also believe our highly engaged and inspired employees help attract and on board the best people in the market. We are humbled by our success but equally confident about our future because of our culture and great employees! - Jim Kavanaugh, CEO of World Wide Technology.
