Supporting Your Employees’ Goals in 2023

Supporting your employees’ goals in 2023 is more important than ever. The increasing frequency of employees quitting their jobs for better opportunities makes retention even more essential.

How you help your employees reach their goals impacts whether you are an employer of choice. This affects your ability to attract and retain talent. The following suggestions can help.

Implement these ideas to support your employees’ goals in 2023.

Permanently Implement a Hybrid Work Arrangement

Employees value work-life balance. They want to set their own schedule and work onsite for a few days and remotely for a few days each week. This flexibility lets employees maintain connections with their colleagues, coworkers, and managers while fulfilling personal needs and interests.

You can support your employees’ goal of work-life balance by permanently implementing a hybrid work arrangement with a flexible schedule. Providing greater control over employees’ schedules and work environment increases engagement, performance, and productivity. It also elevates job satisfaction, employee morale, and retention rates.

Permanently offering a hybrid work arrangement with a flexible schedule improves the employee experience. This increases your ability to attract and keep employees. It also lowers your hiring, onboarding, and training costs.

Provide Upskilling and Advancement Opportunities

Many employees are engaged in quiet quitting. They do only what is required to keep their jobs without going above and beyond to help the organization.

You can counteract quiet quitting with quiet hiring. This involves developing your employees’ skills and abilities rather than hiring additional full-time employees.

For instance, offer stretch assignments and upskilling opportunities to add to your employees’ skill sets. This helps your employees qualify for promotions and fill company needs.

Employees whose goals include career advancement are likely to increase their contributions to secure additional responsibilities and compensation. This increases your retention rate and reduces your hiring costs.

You also can bring in temporary workers to provide the specialized skills your employees are developing to complete a project. These workers can help your employees develop their skills as they complete the tasks. This option is much less expensive than hiring and laying off full-time employees with the necessary skills.
