Win the Job Hop ... (Continued from page 43) Don’t stop there H aving benefits available is a great way to get talent in the door, but in order to keep that talent, employers have to take things a step further. Offering PTO and flexible work is not enough on its own; the company culture has to support the use of these benefits. In one study, Science Daily found that 40 percent of respondents believed that using their PTO would jeopardize their careers and slow advancement at their company. If employees do not feel free to use the benefits provided to them, the benefit of retainment is lost for the employer. These workers are just as likely to jump ship for a company with a perceived better company culture, one that they feel will support them in both their lives and careers. It is therefore important to listen to employee feedback for guidance on how to retain workers for the long term and improve work-life balance at your organization. Emphasis on work-life balance will mean more investment in your employees’ personal well-being. In the end, however, you’ll have a less stressed, more productive workforce and a company culture that will attract high quality candidates. If employees do not feel free to use the benefits provided to them, the benefit of retainment is lost for the employer.
