MobileWirelessJobs: What techniques does your company use to retain employees?
Employer: First and foremost we've created a culture that is a good fit for star performers who enjoy collaborating with others. We focus on hiring employees who are a strong fit for the company and will support and enhance the culture we want to maintain. We are a venture-backed, pre-IPO startup, positioned as a technical leader in an emerging, high-growth market space, so the business and technical opportunity for employees is fantastic. We conduct annual employee surveys to see how we're collectively doing in the areas that are most important to us, and our people initiatives are developed based on the survey results. Some of the programs we've implemented include rewards & recognition and training & development. We have fantastic parties every quarter, a great work environment, and lots of nice little perks. You can learn more about what it's like to work here at www.ourwebsite.com and by reading our blog at
MobileWirelessJobs: Has retaining employees ever hurt the company in terms of hiring newer, more qualified employees?
Employer: We only hire the very best in the first place, and we communicate openly about performance, so we haven't had a problem with this yet.
MobileWirelessJobs: To what degree do you track employee satisfaction? How are you tracking it?
Employer: We're a small company of only 80 employees with a culture of open communication, and a strong open-door policy, so on a day-to-day basis, we have a pretty good idea of how people are doing. We also conduct an extensive, confidential employee survey on an annual basis to identify and address any issues that may not be readily apparent, and to develop new initiatives for improvement.
MobileWirelessJobs: What exercises outside the office are used to improve employee morale? (e.g. softball, company picnics, etc.)
Employer: We have a great holiday party every year for employees and their significant others, and an annual summer picnic for families. During the other two quarters of the year, we have incredibly fun, all-company outings. We've done things like go-kart racing, The Go Game, and geo-caching. We have a company softball team that was nearly undefeated the past two seasons. Our rewards and recognition program includes team rewards and outings to celebrate team accomplishments.
MobileWirelessJobs: What percentage of employees have you retained? What is your turn-over ratio?
Employer: We've retained over 80% of the people we've hired over the past 4 years. Voluntary turnover is about 10%.
