Organisations can attract people with high value skills through a well-presented ad. However, to keep them in the organization, they must put in place workforce management strategies that make these people want to continue with the organization.
Workforce management strategies must fit in with the organization and the place where it is located otherwise they are likely to remain more like book policies that will not be implemented in their true spirit
Clear Goals and Roles - Develop job descriptions that indicate clearly what team role each employee should seek to play, and what goals the person should seek to achieve.
Work Environment: Arrange workstations, facilities and tools that help employees perform without undue stress. Uncomfortable workstations, high noise levels, having to find needed tools yourself, and so on are stressful and make employees look for better places to work in.
Credible Performance Measurement and Reward Structure: One of the best motivating factors is being recognised and rewarded for good performance. The performance must be measured in a way that the employee can understand clearly. Good performance, which can also be measured in terms of contribution to team effectiveness, should be rewarded consistently and without discrimination.
Skills and Career Development Options: Each employee should be able to develop his or her skill, and a career development path should be open for his or her progress in the organization. A certification program can add to the attractiveness.
