As a business owner, I know how important it is to recognize and promote the talents of my team. But with project management deadlines and business development, it can be easy to forget this important piece of talent retention — and recruitment.
Happy employees are the key to client service and recruitment. Here are a few ways to recognize them. These ideas will help you attract more great employees.
How about going social? Create some “meet the team” posts on your social media channels. Share a photo of an employee and talk about why this person is great. Choose employees by lottery or start by featuring your leaders.
A second idea is to include younger team members as authors or presenters. Use a ghostwriter or outsourced vendor to help them write a blog post or develop a video. They might need some initial coaching or art direction, but it’s a great way to showcase your team’s diversity and personalities.
Here’s one more idea. Nominate them for awards. Some of your team members are doing amazing things inside and outside the office. Look for ways to nominate them for industry awards, community or business awards in your region. If you need help investigating your options, you can outsource this public relations task.
A great reputation attracts more talent! Recognize your employees, and word will get around!
