Organizations where people want to work for a longer period of time are focused on the personal growth and development of their employees. You can think of offering in-company training courses and a personal training budget, with which employees continue to develop.

But not only that. Employees in these organizations are also well coached by a manager or HR employee. In 1-on-1 conversations there is room for compliments and constructive feedback from which the employee can learn. Attention is paid to growth and development.

There are organizations that take this a step further, for example by having every employee do a personality survey. This survey gives the organization a good picture of the personality of the employee and thus more insight into the strengths and weaknesses. In addition, it gives the employee more self-insight, which is the basis for personal and professional growth. Based on this profile, an optimal fit between personality and function/tasks can be looked for. An employee who is in the right place is less likely to make the switch to another organization.
