Why are so many business owners struggling to find and keep good team members?

There seems to be a disconnect between what employers are offering and what job seekers are looking for in their next position. Employers often post jobs that focus solely on experience, skillset, expectations and compensation.

While compensation is important, what is equally important to many job seekers is work-life balance and personal well-being. Job seekers want to know that they are valued, that they are not just seen as a tool for performance, and that employers have a culture that supports a healthy work-life balance. How employers show this varies – some offer flexible work schedules that allow for an employee to be productive during work, but also take care of personal obligations whether it is children, an aging parent, or the pursuit of a personal hobby. Other companies invest in the well-being of their employees by offering company wellness retreats or reimbursement for personal improvement tools like books or online courses.

The one trait that companies with happy employees share is an active interest in the well-being of their team. Supervisors continually ask how team members are doing, whether they have the tools they need to do their job, and whether there is something else the company could be doing to support the personal well-being of the team members. This costs nothing, has a tremendous impact on team members, and yet many companies fail to do it.
