Have you ever had occasion to sit in your office and contemplate your department? If you’re lucky, you take a satisfying deep breath, nod to yourself and say “I’ve got a great team. They make the department look good and my job a whole lot easier. I need to let them know that.”
Then you get sidetracked with a phone call and another project. You forget about your introspective moment until…
Someone turns in their resignation. Oh, they have great reasons, better pay, better hours, better opportunities – you’ve heard them all.
That’s when you sit at your desk and say to yourself – why didn’t I let them know how valuable they were to me?
It’s called re-recruiting your best people – keeping them happy, motivated and engaged in their work.
