A recent study by the Gallup’s 2013 State of the American Workplace Report states employees are not particularly excited about their jobs.

We thought of some great tips to help you retain your employees!
Brag! Things to brag about to their peers are great. Employees want to feel proud of the company they work with. Often important perks to these people are those that seem extravagant to their peers.
Perks! Hosted happy hours may not retain employees who don’t like their boss. Young workers are likely to prefer these type of perks more but all employees can benefit for a team building activity that encourages getting to know another employee or their supervisor more.
Money! In the short term, a pay raise is always a great choice if there are motivational issues. Long term benefits include compensation packages that let employees voice their opinions. Employee preferred benefits like flexible working hours or bonuses that reward productivity and motivate workers are your best bet at higher productivity and long-term employee retention.
