Employee satisfaction is something that is absolutely vital to any successful company.

After all, your workers are the fuel that drives your company, so having happy and satisfied employees is a surefire way to boost your business to the heights that you want it to reach. So, how do you go about actually keeping your employees happy or boosting your employee retention?


In this article, we will share 6 simple ways in which you can do so. Keep on reading to find out more!

1. A Simple Gift Goes A Long Way 

You may think that a tiny gift would not be enough to boost employee retention, but you are wrong. Even the simplest of gestures that you show to your employees can reap great results. Giving your workers corporate gifts once in a while, or treating them to a team lunch once a month is a fantastic way of showing your appreciation for them and their work. When employees feel like their hard work is appreciated, they’ll feel fulfillment as well as a sense of job satisfaction. These are the key ingredients in building a long term employee.


2. Offer Training


Sometimes, employees may feel left in the dark or incompetent if there are new technologies or systems in place that they do not understand. Making an employee feel redundant is a sure way to walk them out the door, so always ensure that all your workers are offered sufficient training to upgrade their skills once in awhile. Not only will this build an air of confidence in your staff, but the skills that they learn will help build your business up as well.


3. Pay Your Employees Well


If employees feel like they are not paid enough for the amount of work they are doing or are responsible for, then they are more than likely to leave and join your competitors. This is something you definitely want to avoid, so always ensure that employees are paid well.


Recognise effort, skill and talent and give people raises when they have done a consistently good job. It is better to pay an employee more than to replace them - it can cost as much as 30-50 percent of an entry-level employee's annual salary just to replace him or her.


4. Allow Employees To Have Fun


Employees that are allowed to have fun whilst working, or in their work environment, end up being a lot more passionate, productive and enthusiastic about their jobs. When people feel engaged in their work, and not like a robot or just another cog in the wheel, they feel an overall sense of fulfilment, and will most definitely avoid joining your competitors any time soon.


5. Remember The Little Things


You have no idea how special you can make someone feel if you remember their birthday, get them a tiny cake or sing a team birthday song for them on their special day. Often in large companies, people do not think or feel like they matter enough, so showing them that they are indeed an appreciated member of staff can go a long way. Even if it is just a Christmas card or a box of chocolates on their work-anniversary day, a little goes a long way.


Recognising your employees can truly contribute to boosting the success of your business in the long-term. Find out how you can grow your company with your employees through recognition today!
