Which Behaviours Help You Retain Your Employees? [Infographic]

WestJet-employee-engagement

Did you know that 1 in 5 working Americans do not feel valued by their employers? The numbers are likely similar in Canada, as well.

Employees who don’t feel valued are far more likely to disengage, which has a huge impact on your business’s profitability and productivity.

A recent infographic by Akken Cloud tackles the topic of employee retention. It shows how a leader’s behaviour affects whether their employees are engaged or not – and therefore whether they’re likely to stay at that job.

When I conduct my half day Leadership Boot Camp, I ask leaders to describe what engaged employees look like versus disengaged employees. They almost always come up with a list just like what you will see in the infographic, “Avoid Toxic Behavior and Build Self-Worth to Retain Employees”.

3 Key Drivers of Employee Engagement: Focus, Capability, and Will

The crux of this infographic is exactly what I talk about when I discuss the three key drivers of employee engagement: Focus, Capability, and Will (click here to watch my video on the subject).

Emotions have an important role in the workplace. As the infographic demonstrates, feeling valued is a powerful part of building a relationship with an employee.

It requires a number of critical interpersonal skills:

  • Listening
  • Acknowledging
  • Caring about the person
  • Seeking input
  • Recognition
  • Being on time to meetings with employees and trying your best to keep to schedules
  • Respecting employees’ time in meetings
  • Understanding the employees’ point of view
  • Being humble and vulnerable
  • Always working on the problem (not on who caused it)
  • And so on!

Leaders who seek to engage employees do all these things.
