Improve Your Internal Processes to Reduce Employee Turnover
When discussing talent retention, the immediate focus tends to be on how compensation, environment, and relationships with leaders affect an employee’s decision to leave an organization. However, though these are important factors, it is important to recognize that internal processes directly affect employee performance, engagement, and satisfaction—which ultimately drive voluntary or involuntary employee turnover rates.
Evaluation of internal workflows will determine how equipped employees are to meet organizational goals—which will determine how likely they are to remain engaged and effective. Do employees have the tools and resources to perform their jobs? Are there clear written policies in place? Do processes align with written policies? Are there redundancies in the process? Do systems support or hinder workflows? Has success been clearly defined? How are changes in process communicated? Answering these questions will help managers quickly assess what specific areas of internal process require immediate attention.
