Retaining Good Staff
An organization’s capacity to identify, attract and retain high-quality, highperforming people who can develop winning strategies has become decisive in competitive advantage. High performers are easier to define than to find. They are people with limitless energy and enthusiasm. They are full of ideas and get things done quickly and effectively. They inspire others through the force of their example. Such people can push their organizations to great heights. However high performers generally leave because organizations do not know how to keep them.Money remains an important motivator but organizations should not imagine that it is the only one that matters. In practice, high performers take for granted that they will get a good financial package. They seek motivation from other sources.
High performers are very keen to develop their skills and their curriculum vitae. Offering time for regeneration is another crucial way for organizations to retain high performers. Work needs to be varied and time shouldbe available for creative thinking and mastering new skills. They do not want to feel that success they are winning for the organization is lost because of the inefficiency of others or by weaknesses in support areas. Above all, high performers – especially if they are young – want to feel that the organization they work for regards them as special. If they find that it is not interested in them as people but only as high performing commodities, their loyalty is minimal. On the other hand, if an organization does invest in its people, it is much more likely to win loyalty from them and create a community of talent and high performance that will worry competitors.
