The Refuse-list to Help You Make Your People Stay

Before becoming the boss, you may have experienced starting your career as an employee who made your way to the top. Now that you handle people, you must realize that retaining your employees is also hard work. While some can tolerate you, there will always be employees who value their worth more than anything else.

With that, here is the refuse-list you may want to refuse to make your employees stay.

Refusal to Communicate

Do you also remember how you would talk to your parents about the cartoon you’ve been watching? If not, well, your parents do, as they listen attentively to the things we blab about, be it the most nonsensical thing there is.

Take this practice and apply it to your leadership style – communicate and engage. Check on your employees. Listen to their sentiments and ideas.

It’s a win-win situation – they talk, and you listen and understand.

Refusal to Recognize

You may never forget to put “thanks and best regards” at the end of your email, but recognition goes a long way more than that. Conduct recognition programs that would be dedicated to culminate their hard work. Incentives and tokens of appreciation may take what it needs to give them the boost to work on that document you asked for the other day.

Again, win-win situation – you ensure your employees are recognized; and they will be more motivated to stay and work at your company.

Refusal to Development

Organize team-building activities and seminars to strengthen your company's foundation

and ensure that you and your people have an adequate support system within the group. Let this also be an opportunity to give all of you breathers.

The win-win situation?

  • You get to know your employees better;

  • You learn;

  • Your employees will also learn, helping them make better outputs.

It’s a triple win this time.

Refusal to Perks

Your company benefits from the talents they invested i

n before going to your company, so make sure you give importance to them. You may also consider bonuses and raises


In addition, promoting work-life balance is the key to happy employees. Value their time as much as you value yours, and understand they need to rest as much as you do. Set boundaries and emphasize their wellness; they also need time for themselves.

Win-win. You rest, they rest.

Refusal of a Healthy Environment

Life is already hard, and work makes it even harder, let’s not make it toxic by promoting unhealthy working environments. Emphasize respect and good relationships among seniors and employees, and communicate well.

Yup, our last win-win for the day: you take care of your employees, and they stay at your company.

The takeaways?

It’s hard to take care of something – your health, home, prized posse

ssions, fitness, or surprise! ˆEven taking care of your employees might be challenging because of its demand but remember: win-win.

There may be a lot of willing applicants, but only some days do you find extraordinary talents like the ones you have now. Treasure them, and they will treasure you back.
