Some companies fire employees they catch working on their resume. Some let people go when they find their resume on Monster or some other job posting site. That’s odd to me.
Do they want employees who don’t want to work for them? What kind of service do those employees deliver? How committed are they to the company vision? Is that what you want?
I know that the cost to acquire an employee is high. The cost of your employees being disengaged is higher. Fewer want to leave when more are engaged. Multiple studies show that companies with engaged and happy employees make more money.
Let the unwilling find greener pastures. Let them resume their resumes. The people who are willing will be happier and more engaged.
Tomorrow, we’ll look at a simple way to increase that engagement.
