How do you build a workplace that quality employees want to remain with and quality outsiders want to be hired into?

According to a 2017 SHRM/Globoforce survey, 47% of HR leaders cited employee turnover and retention as their top challenge. The race to acquire, engage and retain employees is as intense as ever. Losing your best people impacts productivity, disrupts leadership and can reduce company morale.

In this interactive workshop we will discuss strategies for employee retention and the importance of having a plan and taking action. An overview of avoidable turnover is explored:

  • Why do employees quit?
  • When are employees most vulnerable?
  • What can supervisors do to improve retention?

Steps to improve retention are covered, including onboarding and training, communication, feedback, recognition, coaching, and aligning team goals with company mission. Discussion, exercises, leadership and motivation assessments will be used to enhance the learning process. You will leave with specific ideas for implementing retention strategies in your organizations.
