The Importance of Communication and Checking In [VIDEO]

Behind the Biz: Z3 Talent founder Steve Ziegler on how bosses can increase employee retention


Anyone seeking employment or seeking employees knows that the Colorado job market is very competitive. From both ends, this process of hiring can seem tedious and tiresome, and this doesn’t always get easier once you’re hired. Steve Ziegler, the founder of Z3 Talent, says in the above video that every day he’s interviewing top executives from companies that will be shocked to see them go.

So, how can employers keep these executives (or any employees) from seeking new employment? Communication and checking in, Ziegler tells videographer/interviewer Scott Cowperthwaite in the above video.

”It’s important for bosses to know what their employees want, what their career ambitions are,” Ziegler says.”Just getting that cadence with your boss is a good thing.”

This starts with bosses reaching out to their employers and checking in on everything from project status to job satisfaction to how that employee’s life is going. And if bosses aren’t making the first move? Employees should reach out, Ziegler says. This builds trust between employer and employee and can lead to longer, better employment overall.

This interview was conducted by Scott Cowperthwaite as part of a new series with ColoradoBiz, "Behind the Biz,” in which Cowperthwaite profiles Colorado companies on location, asking questions and telling stories that get to the heart of what makes each business tick.
