How can one establish an organization as an “employer of choice”?

Many ideas and examples were shared, however, the overarching theme was that in order to become an “employer of choice” the workplace must be a desirable place to be. For current employees, that means having them communicate to others how much they love their job and employer. For organizations that utilize exit interviews, they need to use them to determine what went wrong and what can be done to prevent future employees from going down the same path.

For attracting future employees, employers may want to apply for various workplace awards such as Gallup’s Great Workplaces, Fortune’s Great Places to Work, and regional awards such as Best Companies to Work For in New York. Applying for and winning awards such as these shows an organization has an active interest in listening to the voice of its employees and can also provide benchmarking and best practices.
