Post Covid, businesses are recruiting – how to retain your new stars

Share this post

As businesses move into recovery from crisis, recruiting is on the increase. How do you retain those staff once you’ve worked hard to find just the right people? It turns out, businesses are prioritising soft skills rather than technical, and you’re going to want to automate the mundane tasks like payments and business accounts and reconciliation, so your shiny new recruits don’t get bored and look elsewhere for interest and challenge. Read our full article So with recruitment on the up, but with it proving harder to find the right people that fit, how do you make sure you keep the good ones?

Be prepared to develop your people, as emotional intelligence and resilience are key to keeping the people that will help your business grow.

And make sure, once you’ve given them opportunity and space to grow, you don’t overwhelm them with the mundane tasks that could be automated, like managing payments, reconciling accounts and tracking and chasing who’s paid and who hasn’t.

Open Banking enabled services, like Ordo, now offer businesses a variety of methods of payment, from bill payment and call centre Request-for-Payment services and eCommerce, to point of sale face to face transactions via QR Code. The  good news is, not only do these services come with low cost and instant payment, they also mean real time notifications for both business biller and payer, and automatic reconciling, meaning your new recruits can get on with the more interesting parts of their job and fuelling business, rather than repetitive tasks that will have them peeking back into the job market.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
