Many times, employers increase staff salaries to motivate employees to stay.
However, increasing salaries and benefits to unmotivated employees means paying more money to unmotivated employees. Staff have different career aspirations and expectations. Those in mid-career, with six (6) years or more work experience need great pay and better working conditions
However, new young hires need challenges and opportunities for growth
Many times, employees want to know two things
- Is there room to get to the top? What positions are ahead of my current title? If yes, what does it take for one to qualify for one? What are core skills, competencies, and minimum qualifications to qualify for the position
- Once I get the role, what are the minimum pay and benefits?
Any company with a winning People Agenda and Culture Strategy (these days we rarely refer to it as HR and Administration), creates clarity of the structure, pay and benefits, and minimum qualifications and implements the same transparently.
That is what employees want.
Clarity of the career progression, what is required and why, and when they make it, they competitively get promoted without making them wait and wait and wait as if their years or time has been put on hold!
