How to Keep Employees From Looking for a new opportunity in the Supply Chain Discipline

Just like finding qualified candidates is a challenge in the logistics discipline, so is retaining talent. If you’re trying to figure out how to keep your employees from leaving, start by figuring out how to keep your employees happy. When employees are happy and content with their jobs, it increases the likelihood that they will remain on your payroll and be loyal to your company.

If you’re worried about keeping your supply chain employees happy, here are some of the things you can do to ensure they stay with your organization:

  • Reward talent with things they value: While you may think giving employees more money will make them happier, that’s often not the case for high-level executives, managers and directors. Whether it’s learning opportunities, more vacation time or the chance to advance, figure out what your workers value and reward them with it.
  • Tell your staff how much you appreciate them: Letting your talent know how much you value them and their work can go a long way toward making them happy. Saying “please” and “thank you” and sending personalized emails that discuss specific accomplishments are a few ways to demonstrate your appreciation.
  • Create a mentorship program: Sometimes, there can be a disconnect between more seasoned executives and younger workers. You can bridge this gap by creating a mentorship program that makes experienced directors feel like their knowledge is valued and that shows younger workers you feel their continued one-on-one education is a worthy investment in their future.
  • Use a specialized recruiting agency: A lot of the time, employees do not work out because they are not a good fit for a company’s culture, At Optimum Supply Chain Recruiters, we work with both candidates and clients to ensure that your values align. This culture match helps to keep talent happy and decreases employees turnover.
