“Employer of Choice” means primarily means your business is a great and desirable place to work. It also gives your business a huge advantage in attracting better candidates and retaining employees. When a business is hiring, the employer should want candidates choosing to work for them. They also want employees to choose to stay working for you.
It’s expensive and time consuming going through the hiring process of finding the a candidate, training the person, and retaining that employee. Salary is no longer the only factor that candidates consider.
To become an “Employer of Choice” is not costly
Here are just a few suggestions of what a business may consider:
• Promote a healthy “Work/Life Balance”
• Employee Recognitions/Awards/Respect
• Increase communications.
• Promote within/offer Opportunities for Advancement
• Show Off your Company Culture: Do you have a Mission Statement or Core Values? Frame it/Post it for the General Public, Customers, and employee’s to see.
