7 Signs Your Employees Are Poachable


A recent survey by Manpower suggests that employers across the country are planning to increase their hiring during the second quarter of 2011. Are your employees poachable? Consider the following:

1) Is employee morale down? If so, it may not be long before the word is out. With the use of social media growing exponentially, there are more ways than ever before for recruiters to learn if employees are fed up with their companies and ready to tip toe out the door. You want to know if your employees are unhappy before your competitors do. Don’t wait until they are broadcasting their discontent on social networks. If you are unclear about how your employees feel, conduct an internal survey to measure morale before it’s too late.

2) Is upheaval shaking up your industry? Employees working in industries that are facing increased regulation, an onslaught of mergers or uncertainty about tomorrow’s profitability are more apt to want to leave to find a more stable environment. If your industry is in transition, don’t leave your employees guessing about what’s going on. Be open and honest. Employees who feel like they are being kept in the know feel more loyalty to their companies and are less likely to bolt for the door when turbulence is afoot.
