It is not hard to make your young talent leave you and your organisation, but here are some practical tips to make that process as smooth as possible.
First, you need to make it clear how the company works, how you work, and what the person has to change to fit in. Work is done in the office between 08:00 and 17:00. Make sure that the technology doesn’t work or that it is simply outdated. Show your employees that you do not have any confidence in the individual by micromanaging as much as possible. If the topic of “change” pops up, show them how long it takes to make decisions. Happily blame bureaucracy and politics.
Specifically for your top talent – the ones who are not actively searching for other jobs, but who the jobs find – following these steps will ensure a smooth separation process.
