What do employees look for in a company?
The easy answer is that employees look for perks. Think the office playgrounds of Google and Facebook. But numbers tell the truth, and what employees want even more may surprise you.
Many companies are realising that employees want more mentoring in their roles. “Companies that focus on developing a strong corporate culture and mission are more likely to retain top performers because the predominant values of the workforce are changing. Employees in their twenties and thirties care less about take-home pay than the ability to work at a place that reflects their core values.”
This can look like many things and can happen in the smallest startups, to the largest multisite corporations.
So, what does your company culture look like, from a mentoring point of view?
These can be anything from regular coffee catchups between staff of different levels, or a formal ‘buddy’ system. Mentoring is something that needs be a formal follow-on from any employee induction programs.
