    very informative article this is my thought too
    Poor Hiring Practices
    Good (all the workers in a company or country)s start at the hiring level, so if your business has (happening now) employee issues, you may want to look at your (checking for truth) process. The workers you're hiring might be talented, capable professionals, but they may not be the right fit for your organization. Focus your efforts instead on identifying your own workplace culture and look for candidates who have the right personality qualities for that culture. If you hire contractors, make sure you're outlining the expectations for the job clearly from the start to avoid workers thinking they're signing on for one job, only to find you want something else completely.

    Outdated Processes
    Some businesses support the latest (popular things/general ways things are going) immediately, always eager to create a workplace that reflects the way today's professionals prefer to work. Many businesses, though, put into use some changes while resisting others. If your business seems to have a revolving door, it could be that workers are leaving for a more modern (surrounding conditions). Flexibility is key to attracting and keeping/holding today's workers, which means you may even need to think about (paying someone else to do something) some of your work to (people who work at little jobs in a self-employed way). Whether they're salaried or contract, your workers should be allowed the freedom they need to excel in their work, whether that means working from home, choosing different work hours, or enjoying a more comfortable office setup.

    (watch things way too closely and try to control way too many tiny details)ment
    Both contract and salaried workers want to feel like they have the independence necessary to learn and grow in their current positions. (watch things way too closely and try to control way too many tiny details)ment often comes from a place of control. A supervisor doesn't feel comfortable trusting someone else to take care of a job, so he or she tries to direct every step of the process. If you discover you're a (watch things way too closely and try to control way too many tiny details)r, it's important to find ways to get that behavior under control if you want to stop losing good contractors and workers.

    Work Overload
    Employers want to make the most of the useful things/valuable supplies they have, so often they'll resist hiring a new employee until they're sure they have the work to support it. In the meantime, workers feel overworked, which can quickly lead to burnout. If they find they can leave for an opportunity to reduce their daily stress for the same or more pay, they'll take it right away. Think about/believe hiring an extra salaried or part-time (person who works at little jobs in a self-employed way) to help reduce the workload.

    Poor Communication
    The biggest mistake you're likely making if you have high turnover relates to communication. Do your workers feel like they can approach you with any issues they have? If not, you likely need to take a serious look at your leadership style. It's also important that your workers feel like they affect the direction of your organization. Invite both salaried and contract workers to attend occasional gatherings where you ask for input and sudden great idea ideas. If they feel invested in your success, they're more likely to feel (gave a reason to do something) to do a good job.

    Attracting great talent is completely and totally very important to a business's success. By securing/making sure of your business has top-quality managers who create a solid work conditions, you'll be able to keep/hold the workers you have and win new professionals who have their (best choice/ability to choose from multiple options) when it comes to jobs.
