How Workspaces Retain Employees

 


Employing talented people and keeping them engaged with your company’s goals is critical for your success. To that end, it’s worthwhile to find ways to keep your employees satisfied and growing. Here are just a few ways you can transform your workplace to boost employee retention. 

 

Create a Strong Company Culture

Company culture might feel like a buzzword, but it’s one of the most important factors for retaining employees. A weak company culture can leave your employees feeling apathetic and disconnected from their job and their coworkers. A strong company culture rewards achievement, encourages collaboration, and promotes a healthy work-life balance. There are a few simple ways to start strengthening your culture--give each employee room to develop and learn in their position, and connect your company’s mission to the work that each person does. 

 

Update Your Office

One factor that might be harming your company culture is an outdated office. Old decor can give your employees the sense that they’re working in a stagnant environment that won’t help them grow. Even if your budget won’t fit a full office overhaul, you can start by making a few key changes. Updating conference rooms with sleek Aria glassboards from Ghent or adding Impression bulletin boards to common spaces can be strong first steps toward a full office update.

 

Show Off Your Achievements

Celebration is key to any thriving company culture, and awards are one of the best ways to show appreciation and recognize your employees’ hard work. If you don’t already, consider setting up a yearly company retreat. This can be a time to reflect on your company’s growth, participate in team-building exercises, and give out awards to employees who have gone the extra distance to help your company succeed. After the ceremony, you can show off the awards in a display case from Waddell.
