9 Ways Employers Can Enhance Retention

The cost of turnover in the United States is $1 trillion each year. Yes, you read that correctly. A trillion dollars—which means a trillion reasons for businesses to put staff retention first.

You might be wondering why the cost of turnover is so high. Well, there are a variety of expenses to account for when workers leave a firm, including:

The cost of replacing the employee in terms of both time and money (including onboarding and recruitment of new talent).
Low morale of employees who are left behind.
Productivity loss throughout the recruiting and onboarding process
Loss of expertise and corporate knowledge for your firm.

According to Gallup, replacing an employee might cost anywhere from one-half to two times the person's yearly compensation. On the other hand, companies that retain their staff for extended periods of time can easily benefit from rewards that go beyond the expenses of recruiting and training.

Retention of employees leads to:

Improved client service.
Continuity and momentum within teams and throughout the organization.
A more positive corporate culture that supports employee engagement.

Companies can also improve their recruitment process to grow their teams when engagement is high, and turnover is low. In other words, it's to your company's best advantage to look after your current workforce and employ strategies that increase retention and engagement wherever possible.

If you are looking for ways employers can enhance retention rates, read on!

How to Fix a "Too Tall" Office Chair Without Buying a New One

If you order online, you would be surprised when you see the item in person for the first time. For instance, you checked out an ergonomic office chair and days later, it arrived on your doorstep. You are shocked to see that it is bigger than you initially thought. But don’t fret; you don’t really have to return the chair and demand for a new one. It’s easy to fix the chair height issue if you get to the root of it.

The first thing every customer does to a new chair is adjusted its height according to their body and their needs. But what happens if the chair is just really too tall for you. What can you do to solve this problem? We discuss it below to help you figure out a solution for your concern.

Understanding What a "Too Tall" Office Chair Means

Understanding What a "Too Tall" Office Chair Means

There is a difference between "too tall" and "too tall but workable." Ask yourself what made you say that it was too tall. Say you are really a short than an average person so it’s not uncommon that standard office chairs are too tall for you. Of course, designers of office chairs based the height range from a person of typical average height and go up from there. There are chances that you won’t fall within this range.

Another possibility is that you weren’t able to adjust the chair to its lowest possible setting. Double check and pull the appropriate lever to lower the gas spring. There are times that you might have simply not adjusted it all the way down. To be sure, read the instructions again and follow them step by step.

Another thing to look at is if there are any obstructions. Your chair might be crashing into something that is preventing it from being lowered down. Again, check and adjust accordingly.
