The Resource Link has developed a “Management Hack” to help your team stay engaged, motivated, and not looking for accounting jobs. Use this to help ensure they stay in place during this crazy candidate-driven market!
With just an hour and a half of upfront time commitment, you will start to have a more motivated and engaged team. (Who won’t be answering recruiters’ inmails on LinkedIn!)
Step 1: Keep your team engaged by talking with them! (Schedule a 30-minute meeting)
Of course, the obvious first step is to engage your team in open and meaningful dialogue. This means, don’t accept “it’s fine” as an answer. And, they should be doing most of the talking.
You can and should do this even with average performers, as it may help them become more engaged.
Step 2: Keep your team engaged by setting expectations (30-minute prep / 30-minute meeting)
Take the information from the initial conversation and decide on a game plan to help the individual achieve their goals.
This should be done one week after the first meeting so you both have time to prepare.
Step 3: Keep your team engaged with monthly to quarterly check-ins (15-minutes each)
At a minimum of every quarter, have a quick follow up. How are things progressing? What has gotten in the way?
Make it happen!
