It’s 3:00 PM…Do You Know Where Your People Are?

Starbucks jpegSomething interesting happened yesterday. I was having coffee at a Starbucks in a retail center when a storm of workers descended around 3:00 PM. I wouldn’t have thought twice about this if I were in a downtown location, but this happened way out in the burbs.

I thought to myself, if I were a recruiter, this would be an awesome place to be. I could simply sip my coffee and wait for dozens of potential employees to arrive. And if I were really smart, I could tape my business card to the back of a Starbucks gift card and hand them out as people walked by. Talk about getting people’s attention!

A recent Right Management survey indicated that 83% of employees would be actively looking for a new job in 2014. I would suggest that you turn your attention to employee retention or risk having your people leave for coffee and never return.
