Instead, “leadership transparency and to know that they [employees] have the ability to do their best work for an ethical company that knows they matter,” is what will keep employees wanting to stay, Amelia Ransom, senior director of engagement and diversity at Avalara, says. And “those things don't cost a dime.”
Rose M. Velez-Smith, global vice president of human resources at Pitney Bowes, says stretching work assignments, offering career paths that encourage individual growth and fostering a culture of inclusiveness are important for her.
“Everyone wants to feel like they are adding value, so including employees in important decisions and initiatives is key,” she says. “Helping them feel confident in their skills and keeping them current is essential.”
