The startup employee isn’t known for his or her permanence; in fact, start employees tend to come and go quite quickly. They’re either poached by larger companies or other startups. If you want to keep your workers, Mashable offers some advice. For example:
Encourage employees to set personal goals. Start with lightweight goals with no firm end dates. Ask new workers, “What do you think we should do?” Then, work on prioritizing these goals as a team. Once these goals are set, an employer can monitor and recognize an outstanding job on an as-needed basis.
This does not mean check up on your workers every day. Instead, when you do come across an exceptional project or proposal, take the time to send a quick email or stop by the worker’s desk and personally thank them for their hard work and dedication. Employees appreciate recognition for their hard work and it means a lot coming from supervisors and managers.
