Employee Retention and Motivation

Everyone knows that retaining top talent is essential to organizational success.

How to succeed in Employee Retention

. To maintain a stable workforce, employers must deliberately engage in retention activities. These efforts range from re-recruiting interviews to family activities and individualized compensation packages. People need to feel wanted, valued, appreciated. They want to do meaningful work and have some say in how their jobs are designed, managed, and measured. Today's employees want to be stable, but are often "chased out" by those who are more concerned with power and position than with caring for people.

Looking beyond Retention

Clearly a competitive advantage in today's turbulent employment environment is not achieved easily. Building a stable workforce takes considerably more than just throwing money at people or giving them use of a fancy car. There's more involved than just a lot of aggressive recruiting or strong attention to retention. To achieve workforce stability, with all its financial and operational advantages, employers must invest energy in resources in a range of discrete strategies. When woven together, these various aspects create a comprehensive model for building and maintaining that coveted condition of a solid, stable workforce that drives more dollars to the bottom line.
