Take care of your employees
– or the grass is always greener somewhere else
Both Covid-19 and trends like The Great Resignation, leaving without having another job lined up, and Quiet Quitting, are all about delivering only the bare minimum required by your contract.
This lack of commitment can be fatal for the company, the team spirit and indeed the employee’s job satisfaction. We have seen numerous examples of people changing their lives and quitting their jobs.
More and more people are suffering from stress with quite serious consequences, and in general, there is a strong focus on work-life balance. Fortunately, Denmark is already ahead in this area, but burning out in a job that gives nothing in return but a pay cheque is probably becoming a thing of the past. More is needed.
Another part of the explanation for the high number of resignations is that your employees are constantly seeing job offers on their social media, and headhunters have become much more eager than we’ve seen before.
Employees are exposed to green grass everywhere, and if they’re not loyal, they’ll understandably be tempted.
Especially if your lawn looks wilted.
