Your employees come first. And if you treat your employees right, guess what? Your customers come back, and that makes your shareholders happy. Start with employees and the rest follows from that.” – Herb Kelleher
Do you find yourself dealing with one employee and the same underlying issue over and over again?
"Hey. They aren't great, but it could be worse."
Maybe you are like most good managers, you don't want to give up someone you have invested a lot of time in. Perhaps as sometimes happens, this is a new issue with a long-time employee, and you really don't want to lose him.
You must see something in the person or you wouldn't still have them around. You've tried everything and nothing seems to get through.
Plus, you know that turnover costs on average $3500 per turn. You have already invested a lot of time and resources. And, the next person might not be any better. Not to mention the time you will lose and the stress on the others picking up the slack while you find a replacement.
We are here to say, you don't have to settle. Good employees are hard to find, but one bad one can infect the whole team.
This is where Equipany can help.
It's likely not your fault. As an employer (manager or HR leader), you have limits to what you can talk about with an employee.
Sometimes mentoring or warnings are not enough. They just are not getting it. Sometimes the only successful intervention needs to come from an outside source to get employees on track. There are tools, tactics and strategies that can help them be more effective, and they don't know it. As an employer you are limited in what you can say. But a smart outsider can show them the way. We can provide a safe environment for those who are struggling to learn and grow and finally see what roadblocks are causing them trouble.
It's not your fault. You can solve the problem by handing it over to us. Then, you have given this employee a great gift. It's up to him or her to make the most of it.
