Some cases have happened in the company where a confirmed employee after using leaves and taking salary just calls up next day saying they are not interested in the job any more for whatever reasons. What to do... Is it a fault in the regular leave policy?? Can we make changes in that so that they dont get paid full months salary even after they take leaves and are confirmed?? Is it ethically right??
they now pay their employees between 15-20th every month.. and another month's lag for even the allowances to get finalised n then come incentives etal.
this is a wrong strategy similiar to the one adopted for domestic helps.. people give them a small pocket money every month and even when the servan wants to go on the annual pilgrimage to his hometown, people donot pay the entire amount for fear of loosing the employee..
This is an ideal sceenarion for initiating an Employee satisfaction survey, Exit interviews pref by 3rd parties since most mgmt do not enjoy the credibility/ impartiality needed for a free discussion.
Survey of competitor's compensation leves wont harm either..
a) try introducing a salary hike on completion of probation after six months
b) you may give a loyalty bonus to employees who succesfully complete a year of service.
c) closely tied to the 2nd option, increase the hiring through employee referrals.
d) if your employees are practically freshers, then introduce a concept of paid learning like we had in plenty of IT cos earlier.
Set up a training wing, ask people to enroll, teach them for 1 month and then put them on live calls.. pay them a stipend according to their performance for the next few months.
your company makes money by training fee plus wage differential during on the job training..
lastly set up a placement wing and provide placement services too.
Make money once again (>10% CTC)
e) interact with a university for courses like MBA/ BBA, offer to pay half their course fee and provide benefits like company cabs/ food etc on weekends when classes are held
You as HR resource need to engage employees in constant dialogue with you to find out theroot cause of this particular issue.
You need to also note who are the managers who loose their employees in such fashion . There might be serious problems of Manager-subordinate relationship.
Use these options, you will be able to find out why this is happening
