We are living in a job-hopping generation were staff no longer stay working for the same company for 40 years, receiving a carriage clock for their lifelong service.
According to research by Oxford Economics and Unum, the average cost of turnover per employee (earning £25,000 a year or more) is £30,614.
That means if you replace three employees on this wage in one year, the cost of employee turnover will be close to £92,000. That's huge and improving employee benefits is one way to halt that.
Staff retention is imperative, and part of that journey is retaining top talent. “A” class employees need to know that you have their welfare at heart. They are looking for…
- Exceptional Home from home environments
- To become familiar with an environment
- The knowledge that the housekeeping will be taken care off
- To know the fridge will be stacked on arrival.
- To feel relaxed within their environment

By choosing an environment that has specifically thought about their needs, feelings and wellbeing this raises their feeling of worth & therefore productivity.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Julia Hart has spent many years traveling and working out of traditional hotel rooms within the UAE.
When moving into the world of property/hospitality five years ago she realized that she felt confident and understood what customers wanted and needed when staying away from home.
“Sitting on the edge of a bed balancing a laptop does not make it easy to do your job properly. Arriving into a cold, barren, stark room was also such a disappointment & I could not wait to get back home”.
So, she set about designing apartments with a home from home feel where you want to kick your shoes off and spend some time. The use of Biophilic design was integrated creating an environment that raises your vibrations and feelings of wellness.
“We want our clients to feel refreshed and ready to get up and out for another great day, then come back, relax & sleep in a calm environment”.
Creating a separate workstation within all our apartments with business facilities means you can finish off your work properly and arrive at the office with a great feeling of accomplishment. If you would like to speak to Julia about staying with Ayoola please contact.
