Most Employees Want the Same Thing Employers Want

it's easy to forget that most employees want the same things employers want — a long term, mutually beneficial relationship. As part of TCA's search process, we ask all candidates why they want to leave their current employer. The overwhelming response is “no room for growth and no potential for advancement.”

Employees want to be productive and appreciated; this happens when they are given significant challenges and growth opportunities.

In a recent example, a client was in desperate need of a Quality Manager. We found a qualified candidate. They hired him and felt he was a perfect match for their needs. Unfortunately, a week after they hired him, their Quality Supervisor, who had been with the company for several years, gave her notice. She felt she was never going to be anything more than a supervisor with the company.

Since the HR Manager and TCA had a very good business relationship, we discussed the situation and decided to offer her a training schedule and promotion plan that would lead to an Assistant Quality Manager position. This employee withdrew her resignation and is now on a career path that she feels will afford many growth opportunities. The company retained her valuable contributions and demonstrated their commitment by investing in her development.
