The Keys to Employee Retention
Why do people stick with you as an employer? What are the factors that cause people to stay or leave? Do you have pockets of high turnover in your company? Do you have departments with no turnover? Understanding employee retention involves examining these questions and others as you work to develop strategies for hanging onto your top talent. In this session on the keys to employee retention, we’ll explore topics such as:
  • Retention starts before the hire: recruiting and hiring right
  • The top reasons why employees leave their jobs – and what you can do about it
  • What do people want from their jobs? What the research on motivation and engagement tells us and how it should change the way we manage the work environment
  • It’s all about the boss – retention is mostly about how employees are treated by their supervisors. Are your supervisors toxic to your retention goals?
  • Conducting “Stay Interviews” and “Pulse” employee engagement surveys to give you early warning of trouble signs
