Tips to Retain your employees

  • Don’t micromanage.  Trust the people you hired to do the work you assigned them.
  • Communicate. Let employees know when and how you want to receive information about the status of their work.
  • Give praise. Ask employees, “How do you like to seek praise?”
  • Share information.  When you find out something, share it with your team and don’t hold back on important information people need to do their jobs.
