As recruitment consultants, we often speak with candidates who don’t feel valued or have no way to progress in their current position. Don’t lose them over some easy fixes.

It’s the small things that matter – it’s not all about money

Just offering staff more money when they hand their notice in may make them stay in the short term, but it generally won’t fix the issue of why they wanted to leave in the first place.

Here are a few simple steps to creating a happier work place that don’t cost the earth

  • Treat everyone the way you would like them to treat you
  • Praise people regularly - a “well done or “good job” goes a long way
  • Keep staff informed and encourage sharing of ideas and opinions
  • Provide free tea and coffee
  • Buy cake on birthdays, or even give them the day off
  • Have an open-door policy - it’s good to talk!
  • Flexibility in hours
  • “Dress down” days
  • Music in the office (not necessarily a sing-along, but it could be!)
  • Offer some additional training or mentoring


Make your employees feel valued from the start

How many of these are you doing already?
