Retaining Talent key to buidling businesses


Yesterday I had a candid talk with Icon Telesec CEO Mr. Nerry Achar. And for the short two hours, he emphasized on building relationships. As we discussed it was clear that employees require security of tenure. All of us want to know we have a place and we are appreciated in our organisations. Orientation is key as this is where employes buy into the organisation’s purpose. Then capacity building in the expertise areas has to be continous so as to improve results, deliver better and attract new businesses.

Mr. Achar believes that business growth is not in showcasing prowess but more in concentrating on aquired clients and serving them to satisfaction. He says to be the best do not run for the race but enjoy the run. He attests that Icon Telesec has seen tremendous growth for the main reason they concentrated on their clients, adding the individual touch and strict eye for detail. They nurtured their staff by having continous training, regular appraisals and allowing to grow.

He agrees that retaining talent in the modern world where “job hopping” is prevalent in this generation is no mean fete. Where talent does not spend more than 2-3 years in any firm. He says organisations need to model their growth around talent. Allowing them to flex their ideas and channel their energies into new projects. And their should be structures in place to allow staff to ultimately buy into businesses. As they grow their input and output becomes more solid, loyal and invaluable. The buy-in option enables them to come into new dispesation of patnerships which then propel organisation even higher.

Businesses need to engrave talent retention in their strategies to discover growth like no other. Many blue chip firms are practicing this and SMEs should consider this more seriously.

Be the best Example


How peaceful one can be allowing cars to join or cross in front of them, following this gentleman was frustrating since we were late but learnt alot. A big up to all the guys who give way when you indicate, allow you to go in first and are at peace driving while well mannered at the same time.
The excuse of being late then driving badly has to stop!

I have seen how embarrassed guys get when they are caught on the wrong by the police or even stupid bumper/scratch accidents. Many ladies are drive well. Though there is a cropping number of them that try to outdo the many who drive badly. Smooth driving saves all of us the pain of being stuck in traffic for long. We flow with ease and save ourselves the trouble of police fines or temptation of bribing the cops who then sin with us. That infuriates God you know.

The most worrying thing is when school buses are driven badly or parents doing it with their kids on board. They run the risk of getting into nasty accidents but more worrying is that our children get to pick the bad habits. In the next few years they will be masters of the driving badly school!

I resolve to be more kind to other motorists & road users!I resolve to be courteous on the road, be early for meetings, joyful & at peace while in traffic. God is watching, people are witnessing and we know good rewards follow those who pursue to be good in the Lord. Whether in the day or night!
