I encourage my clients to really get a pulse of the organization and to know what their employees are thinking before they leave.
You can do this in a number of ways. You can have some employee surveys done to see what’s on the minds of your people. But I will caution you — if you do that and you do not use the information and make changes, then the next go around, you’ll find that people are certainly not going to be as forthright.
You can also get a better sense of how your employees are feeling by spending time with your employees. Get rid of your office and instead step out and start spending some time with your people, who, by the way, are interacting with your customers.
You do have the power to change things so that you can keep your employees from stampeding out the door.
