We are living in the age of The Great Resignation. Engineering talent all across Canada are considering alternatives to their current career paths. When you can't afford to lose your engineering experts, engagement is paramount. Engaged talent equals retained talent. Here are six tips for keeping your engineers engaged.

 

Develop Mentorships

 

Not only can a mentorship provide valuable insight for new employees, but it can also keep your current staff engaged. Allowing someone to share their knowledge, experience, skills, and insight will help them see where they fit in with the big picture of your company.

 

Provide Advancement Opportunities

 

Incoming employees don't want to feel like their new role will be the end of the road in their careers. They know that advancement won't happen overnight, but they want to see a clear path to a future with your organization. Show them how this is handled in your company.

 

Offer Additional Training

 

In the same vein, continue to invest in additional training for team members. This isn't just valuable for them; you will be able to take advantage of their new skills along the way. It's a great way to introduce new ideas and technology into your workplace culture.

 

Focus on Work/Life Balance

 

If the pandemic taught us one thing, our lives outside of work are critical to our professional success. Offering flexible, remote, or hybrid job opportunities will help your employees find better work/life balance. If you're not offering these perks, someone else will.

 

Communicate Your Corporate Culture

 

Your company culture and employer brand are essential for demonstrating your value to current and potential employees. They want to see how the company they work for participates in the community and treats their staff.

 

Value Your Employees

 

At the end of the day, if you're not valuing your employees' skills and experience, they will gladly find a new position with a company that does. Reevaluating your salary packages, benefits, and additional perks will help you stay competitive in this challenging employment market.
