Do You or Don’t You???
Do you invest in the careers of your employees?
I know, you said yes. But do you really? Or are you only investing in skills that will help you today but not them tomorrow? At this point I hope your definitive YES is now a..let me think about that for a moment…
Here is why this matters – 94% of employees state that they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers.
Pretty strong percentage there but it takes a long-view and it takes the chance that you might develop someone and they may leave.
Just got off the phone with a construction recruiter and he mentioned a firm he targets all the time to find people to present to firms looking for people. The punch line on this – I can never get anyone to leave there!
