Job hopping is a hot trend across the United States right now, as the strong employment market puts the people in control rather than businesses. As a result, companies throughout the jan/san industry are tripping over themselves trying to keep quality workers in the doors. 

With employee retention issues in mind, here are tips on how businesses can encourage their workers to stay in 2020, according to Global Banking & Finance review.

1. Share career growth opportunities

For many people, it’s “new year, new me,” and for some of those people, the better version of themselves is defined by an upgrade in job status. If there's spots opening that would allow for advancement, employees should be the first to know.

2. Better work-life balance

Most people work to live and not the other way around. Being that the employee’s time outside of work is so valuable, businesses should consider giving them a more flexible schedule. An incorporation of a summer hours policy or more time off can do wonders.

3. Take a look at compensation

If an employee has been doing a bang up job in his or her position, it’s worth exploring giving that worker a raise should the budget permit.

4. Recognize accomplishments
