Do you regularly promote your employees? If so, what prompts you to give the promotions? How exactly do you promote your workers? If you don’t have clear answers to these questions, you’ve got some work to do.

It’s crucial that employers have a career advancement system that they adhere to. Even if it is not set in stone, such a system makes the process of promoting employees seamless. Too many employers are haphazard about when and how to promote their employees. This makes the promotion process more stressful on the employer. Sadly, it also causes some great employees to miss out on well-deserved promotions.

When deserving employees do not receive promotions, it does more than just disappoint those employees; it also damages a company’s culture. If you rarely advance your employees’ careers, you probably do not understand the value of promotion.

Promotions Make Employees Feel Valued

The primary reason people want to be promoted is because they desire an increase in pay. Very few employees are bucking for an increase in responsibility, which promotions almost always entail. Still, a promotion holds value that is far beyond a mere salary increase. A promotion honors the individual being advanced, and that increases the morale of the person, as well as the entire company. There is no better way to make an employee feel valued than to give him or her a promotion.

Motivate Your Workforce with Advancement Opportunities

Motivating an entire workforce is not easy. How many times have you brainstormed ways to motivate your workforce, only to find things unchanged weeks later? Put an end to a lack of employee motivation by promoting more people. The article When and How to Promote Your Employees states, “An employee who gets promoted tends to feel more inspired and motivated to continue doing the good work, and this is yet another reason why promotions are so important. This increase in motivation leads to better productivity and performance that in turn works in the favor of your organization.” When one employee gets a promotion, other employees will be inspired to do their best work.

Increase Employee Retention THIS Way

Did you know that a great way to retain employees is to promote employees? This is because promoting workers often causes them to feel more loyal to a company. Also, increased pay typically comes with a promotion, which definitely helps you retain top-performing employees. Save your company time and money by promoting your employees before they go to work for an employer who will promote them.

When you promote your employees, you simultaneously increase workforce motivation and retention. Begin regularly promoting your employees. Before you know it, you’ll notice a positive shift in your company’s culture and your employees’ attitudes.
