Why did you leave your last job? Often it's because you move up the career ladder, or find a job that moves your career forward, but it can also be because you found something that looked like it would be a better place to work.

One of the main reasons people give for leaving their job is unhappiness. This can be down to benefits, pay, environment or even because of not getting on with a manager.

If you are that manager what can you do to try and ensure your staff are happy at work and therefore improve staff retention?

Sally Bendtson, human resources expert from Limelight HR, joined Stray FM's Business Hub to explain some ideas that  you could implement to improve employee happiness.

These are split into three main areas:

  • Benefits and rewards
  • Good management
  • Development opportunities

The go to thought might be that these could cost you a lot of time and money, but as Sally explained, there are simple, cost-effective ways to make employees feel good about their work. Have a listen to how you could become the place where staff say "you won't believe what they do for us!"
