Provide Competitive Compensation and Benefits
People’s time is their most valuable asset; most likely, 99% of the people will not work for you for free. When someone is looking for a job, they’ll want to know how much money the job pays.

Providing opportunities for growth and development can help keep them engaged and motivated. You can offer training programs and pay for online courses your team would love to enroll in to keep further expanding their abilities. Career development is highly recommended since talents who have grown within the organization will likely be more efficient and committed.
Nurture a Positive Workplace Culture

Be an advocate of work-life balance, and recognize and reward team members for their hard work and their contributions.
