The Problem
The Main Problem:
Employee Turnover
Why can't they achieve their full potential?
We believe that there are three main issues
Female employees are experiencing gender discrimination
Employees are burned out with low morale
Employees are not prioritizing tasks
The team is told the priority level of their tasks, yet they fail to complete the tasks in the appropriate order
Important projects are not getting done, menial ones are
The root of the problem: motivation
So what will we do about these problems?
Encourage them to:
Option 1: External approach
Monetary bonuses, time off, tangible luxuries
Option 2: Internal approach
Help employees see the intrinsic benefits of working hard to perform for the company
