Building the right team directly determines the growth of a company, keeping the right team invariably determines its survival in a highly competitive business market regardless of niche. A record-shattering 4.5 million people left their job in the US in what is now known as the Great Resignation. Business leaders and team heads have never found it this difficult to keep their workers happy and fully engaged on the job. The pandemic, of course, has played a big role in the increase in the number of unhappy workers, and due to the biological and psychological stress/trauma, many have had to endure, finding ways to keep each team happy has been anything but simple. With the work-from-home culture being adopted by companies, there has been a lot of movements in the job market in the last year, a trend that is expected to continue According to the Bankrate jobseeker survey, 55% of the workforce are actively looking for employment and seeking to move in the next 12 months. Workers leaving your company is not a healthy sign of the wellness and growth of your business. If anything, it shows prospects and top talents why they should not be applying to your company. No one goes to where no one wants to be. You’re thinking what do I have to do? Well here are the three things you should be doing and the last point is the most critical Give Your Staff A Break Not the music business owners want to play but there has never been a better time to consider making your work more flexible for your team. At a time burnout is common and morale seems like igniting a fire in the rain, giving your team a breather sounds like the most profitable decision you can make right now. Yes!

Commitment To Professional Development Of Your Team Building your team professionally and giving them the requisite skill to become great at their jobs is a win-win scenario for any organisation. There is a special feeling that comes with knowing your company is a supporter of your personal dreams and aspiration, and they are also willing to commit resources to your growth. More often than not, that causes workers to also want to be part of the company’s journey and that guarantees their long-term stay in the company.
