In July 2017, Michigan's jobless rate dipped to a level not seen since August 2000. While the unemployment rate is low, the number of people working in Michigan also remains lower than August 2000.
Further, over the next few years while 76 million Baby Boomers retire, the upcoming Generation X population numbers just 44 million people. Simply stated: there are a lot fewer people available to work.
Your best employees, employees that you want to retain, seek frequent opportunities to learn and grow in their careers, knowledge and skill. Without the opportunity to try new opportunities, sit on challenging and significant teams, attend seminars and read and discuss books, they will stagnate.
A career-oriented, valued employee must experience growth opportunities within your organization. Every employer should be asking the question: How do I hang on to my great employees?
