LinkedIn is full of people who claim to have the best methods for retaining their employees. However, when you look at their reviews on sites like Glassdoor, they’re no different from any other company. We all know those reviews exist mainly for venting, so they should be taken with a grain of salt.

There is one individual on LinkedIn who has continually claimed to have great success with employee retention, but when you dig a bit deeper, you’ll quickly realize he’s not doing anything different than any other company. Of course, providing excellent working conditions and generous salaries is a great way to keep your staff, but this isn’t everything.

We’ve often seen employees that fear to leave their jobs because their current working conditions are so favourable they fear they’ll never find anything as good again. So, if something goes wrong, it can hit very hard because they feel they can’t leave.

So, what is the ultimate employee retention tip? Here’s what we believe.

Give everyone in your company reasonable and fair working conditions. Then, be kind and trusting, and allow your employees to shine. When they feel free to use their creativity, they will think and act in the best interests of the company and clients.

Once those conditions are in place, you should give your employees as many opportunities and perks as possible. In other words, don’t limit rewards to the employees with the most ambition.

You’ll never have a company that makes everyone happy. However, we think following this advice can help make your chances of success higher than average.
