Retaining Summer Employees
What about those seasonal employees? As business owners, nothing hurts more than losing a seasonal employee mid-summer and being short on workers. It results in long hours for you or your other employees. Consider these five tips on how to retain your seasonal employees and prevent burnout. In fact, these tips can be used for permanent employees as well.
- Offer a Valuable Experience
- Create a Community
- Give Them a Break
- Acknowledge Their Achievements
- Let Your Employees Know Your Business’ Mission
Your employee isn’t flipping burgers, they’re satisfying hunger. Your employee isn’t teaching swim lessons, they’re helping create memories. Your employee isn’t just filing paperwork, they’re ensuring customers experience exceptional service. Ensure your employees know how they are part of the company’s success.
Employees that see that their job makes a difference and that they’re being recognized for their contribution will enjoy working for you. It will also inspire them to come back next summer and/or stay at your organization.
