Offer Supplemental Compensation: One of the best ways to attract top talent to your company is to offer supplemental forms of compensation. For example, even if a business may simply not be able to offer a higher salary, they may be able to commit to a whole array of other benefits. Be it periodical bonuses, paid vacations, or stock and equity options, supplemental compensation can be effective for attracting and retaining top talent. In many cases, this is a win-win situation for both the employee and employer since the worker feels validated and appreciated without the boss having to forfeit many assets. Another great option is to send employees to training seminars and classes. This makes them feel good that the company is investing time and money in them, and gives them valuable skills to bring back to work.
