Despite appearances, a study by the Ministry of Labor has shown that the breaks of open-ended contracts ( are very frequent. In 2011, 36.5% of permanent employees no longer existed a year later.
3 factors are responsible, the contract is broken before the end of the first year for unskilled employees, a large number of contracts are also broken at the end of the probationary period, both to the employee and the employer. But the main reason for these massive contract breaks remains resignation. It is often a problem for the employer that will lose good elements.
This is why it is essential to do the best possible to maintain its employees. Here are 9 tips:
- They give more work to the best
Indeed, what makes the good employees flee is the work overload. Even if it is very tempting to give more work to a good employee, it is counterproductive. Indeed, studies show that productivity decreases markedly when there is too much work.
- They are not grateful and do not reward good work
Managers need to learn how to communicate with their employees, how they feel useful, where they think they are, and so on. It will be easier to reward them properly afterwards. By communicating with them, you will know if they prefer to be rewarded or facilitated in public or more personally.
- They do not care about their employees
For many employees, going to work means sharing all day with people who need to know each other. A manager who does not know his employees, who does not take the time to listen to them and share with them on a personal subject will reveal an “inhuman” side that will not be appreciated by employees.
- They do not honor their commitments
If the employer makes promises to his employees, they give the impression of a loyal man. This will be highly valued by its employees. On the contrary, if he does not keep his commitment, he will pass for a disrespectful man.
- They hire and promote the bad people
One of the biggest factors of demotivation, indeed remains the neglectful feeling. If an employee does a good job and gives himself 100%, an increase or promotion is the best way to congratulate him and motivate him even more. Unfortunately, it often happens that it is not the right person who is rewarded.
- They do not let them live their passion
Talented employees are passionate about it. Their passion allows them to find solutions to problems, sometimes solutions a little crazy. This is what often blocks managers, unfortunately an employee who can apply his ideas and follow them is often a happy employee. Let them live their passion!
- They fail to develop their skills and move them forward
The opportunity to participate in training and to evolve in a company is very important. So never forget, you are their manager and have to help them grow and progress without being too much on their backs. Do not put forward the concepts of autonomy and independence.
- He does not like creativity
Even if the idea sometimes seems absurd and you prefer to remain “old school” with your habits, let your employees modify thanks to their creativity. Letting them express themselves allows them to escape and not to have the impression of going round in circles without evolution.
