Tips on how to deal with budget cuts and employee turnover
Summer is almost here and in the world of higher education, that means some staff are probably transitioning to new roles and the search for new employees has begun. Across the nation, funding for education is dwindling. This topic hits close to home as Western Kentucky University had to lay people off and slash budgets across the board; therefore, I named this era “Cutting Season.” Fitness fanatics out there may have thought, “Wait, cardio and clean eating?” No, no my fitness friend, today we will discuss tips on how to move forward when you are faced with a budget cut and how to deal with employee turnover. Globetrotter Wellness Solutions will help you prevail through all seasons of peaks and valleys.
When it comes to employee turnover, prevention is truly the key.
Sometimes budget cuts and employee turnover are not preventable such as someone moving for their family or to accept a better opportunity. Be thankful that your organization served as a stepping stone for said individual. As a boss, it may be frustrating having frequent turnover. So don’t be afraid to ask why people are leaving or what they would change if they were the boss.
No one is going to stay with a certain organization forever. At the end of the day, humans are nomads and we are always on the move. Budgets cuts or turnover alike, be kind to those who come in and exit your life with grace and thank them for the lessons that they provide.
Cutting season doesn’t mean you have to cut connections, so stay in contact with those you want to!
