Does your organization reek of desperation?

High value employees can smell desperation from miles away. They will have plenty of opportunities and will not go somewhere that is desperate. High value employees always know what comes along with the desperation. They want no part of it. Low value candidates will look for desperation. They know they have a greater chance of being hired. Low value will not care about the other factors as it will not affect them.

Employee turnover is globally consistent

Over the last few weeks, I have had the opportunity to speak with numerous people all over the globe. Whether they were in North or South America, Europe, Asia or Australia the discussions were identical. Everyone agreed employee turnover is a huge problem. They also shared their employee turnover never became dramatically better. Many times a small improvement would be short lived.

Management does not listen to us

The above statement routinely comes up in organizations. Management has announced another change without listening to the employees first. The change is based in what management thought the production floor needed. Many times there is a total disconnect between management and the floor. This disconnect will be communicated loud and clear in response to the announced change. It is the floor who will always take the brunt of implementation.
