GHR Training Solutions Identifies the Secret of Attracting & Retaining Key Employees on a Tight Budget

Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from GHR Training Solutions

    CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., April 11 /PRNewswire/-- GHR Training Solutions
 announced ways to draw and keep essential personnel -- when firms can no
 longer afford to offer inflated salaries or fancy perks.
     Based on its research and work with organizations across the country, GHR
 Training Solutions has identified the secrets of the most effective
 employers.  In a nutshell:
 
     1.  They pay their employees fairly and well, then get them to forget
         about money.
 
     2.  They treat their employees great.
 
     According to Don Grimme, co-founder of GHR Training Solutions, "Recent
 landmark studies confirm what theoreticians and management gurus have
 maintained for decades:  Money is a necessary -- but not sufficient condition
 -- to attract, retain...and motivate good employees."
     "You and I will go to work for a paycheck and benefits plan.  But we won't
 really do work (at least our best work), unless something else is present,"
 added Sheryl Grimme, GHR Training Solutions' other co-founder.
     The Grimmes maintain, "It is the quality of the work itself -- and of our
 relationships with others at work -- that draws us to the best organizations
 and keeps us there, performing at peak effectiveness."
     For example, the Families and Work Institute's 'National Study of the
 Changing Workforce' found that while earnings and benefits have only a two
 percent impact on job satisfaction -- job quality and workplace support have
 a combined 70 percent impact.  "That's a 35 times greater bang for the buck,"
 observed Don Grimme.  "And, the findings were similar for factors impacting
 employee loyalty, retention and performance."
     "Satisfying employees -- by ensuring that they have meaningful work and
 are treated well -- is not only a nice thing to do, it makes good business
 sense," concluded Sheryl Grimme.

 (even volunteer organizations) -- how to retain and energize irreplaceable
 talent.  For more information, call 954-720-1512 or mail to:
