Improve your Employer Brand

When you are ready, respond to reviews to show your commitment to improving. Come up with a plan of attack, including guidelines, and best practices that adhere to your brand. And don’t forget to nurture and monitor your online brand. Find some time in your day or week to proactively manage reviews; and use the information available to build trust and credibility.

Ground all employees in the company’s mission

Connect everything back to your company mission, so when you are looking to grow your workforce, look for people who are excited to share your values. It’s important to strive to make your employees feel like the company’s culture is something they own. And that employees have the power to protect and shape it.

Focus on employee strengths

Strive to designs roles and teams that help people do work they’re naturally great at and love doing. Employees are more fulfilled and they tend to stay longer if they’re doing work that fits their strengths and makes meaningful impact.

Never stop learning

Find time and opportunities to select new growth challenges and openly share the progress with your employees. Focus on growth – personal and professional, embracing failure, and learning from both successes and mistakes. Hard conversations should be encouraged, and feedback is viewed as a gift. When feedback is given and received with good intent, employees learn and grow. Being open goes both ways.
