Retaining Your Talent
Presented by Deborah Jeffries, SHRM-CP, PHR, CPC, Vice President of HR Answers, Inc.
What are employers talking about? Staffing challenges …. getting good people in the door and keeping them. So let’s talk!! Recognition and praise at work makes employees twice as likely to stay with their employer through tough times. (Gallup). Finding talent is tough, which makes keeping the talent you have even more vital. Poor retention rates cost businesses billions every year, while higher retention can increase your profits by as much as 400%.
In this program our goal is explore what you can do to begin the retention vibe at the very beginning…..and turn the candidate experience into the employee experience. We’ll discuss both short-term and long-term ideas and suggestions for retention – some cost a few dollars and some that have no cost at all.
You will learn new ideas around:
· Onboarding activities;
· Your benefit offerings;
· The importance of belonging;
· Creating a culture of gratitude; and
· Other tips and ideas for employee engagement and fulfillment (not just satisfaction)
