More so, If your company loses talented people, it can be a bigger problem. This can lead to a downward spiral, which drains productivity, causes moral problems, and places you and your team in real trouble.
Keep the right Focus on current employees.
A lack of work or insufficient training can cause good employees to lose interest and develop negative opinions about the company. These mid-level employees can feel disengaged and stressed from insufficient training, difficult projects, or lack of resources.
This is a sign of a downward spiral. They “check out” mentally at this point, and then decide to quit long before it is time.
Get on the upwards spiral.
Give your employees the attention they deserve to prevent these spiraling events from becoming out of control. Give them the tools to see and achieve their goals at work.
You can show them that you value their contribution and nurture them at work by nurturing them. Employees work better and faster when they feel valued, are clear about their goals, and have a sense of how their work has an impact.
Help an employee who is having a difficult time with their job by helping them to feel more satisfied and engaged.
- You can work with them to determine what is wrong and how you can fix it.
- Reduce overwhelming responsibilities and tasks into manageable chunks.
- Your employee should be guided to accomplish one small task at a time so that they can build a record of success. The employee will learn, grow, and feel more competent as a result.
