If you’re like most leaders, you’ve likely felt the effects of the Great Resignation. With more and more people leaving their jobs, many have had to focus on combatting retention. But keeping your people can be tricky, especially in a virtual environment.
Here are three key things to watch if you want to improve retention.
As a leader, you need to delegate and empower your people with different aspects of your business, but be careful with the task-oriented delegation in a virtual environment; you’ll get what you give.
Delegation of this type of work takes minimal effort; it’s cheap and easy to outsource or hand off to someone else. But beware: If one of your employees could do this job anywhere, isn’t learning anything and has no interaction with anyone while doing it, they’re likely to leave because they’re not being challenged.
Take the time and attention necessary to get to know your people, their work habits and communication preferences.
Do your best to pair complementary skill sets to enhance your team’s collaboration and tap into each person’s unique strengths. Fostering collaboration takes some effort, but it’s worth it to create greater retention.
Since we can’t pop champagne together in a virtual environment, celebrating every win becomes even more important, no matter how small. For instance:
• When someone learns something new
• When we make a great hire
• When someone stepped out of their comfort zone
• When someone tried something new and failed but learned in the process
By eliminating task-oriented delegation and increasing collaboration and celebration in your virtual work environment, you’ll up your chances of keeping your people engaged and on your team.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
