Today we’re releasing our latest ebook, “Keep Your People: A Tactical Guide for Employee Retention.” It’s no doubt that employers are focused on filling open positions in their organisations, but it’s also important to take a step back and focus on how you can retain the talent you already have.
The current job market
The post-pandemic recovery is hitting full stride in the United States, and according to new data, the UK is not far behind, recording the greatest increase in new jobs since 2014. This is undoubtedly great news, but it’s not without impact – a perfect storm is brewing that is making it monstrously more difficult to retain employees, and attract new ones.
In the US, people are quitting their jobs at a rate not seen in 20 years. Worldwide, a recent survey found that 41% of people are thinking about leaving their current positions. For any employer, an exodus of employees is difficult. It’s even worse at this particular moment, just as demand is soaring and businesses are recovering.
Learn why employees are leaving
A good place to start is looking at why so many are leaving their jobs – doing so provides an immediate roadmap you can use to shore up employee retention. The ebook offers an in-depth look at the causes of employee turnover right now. Hint: money isn’t one of them. From issues like lack of flexibility to an employee’s manager, the reasons why people leave vary greatly. The good news is if you understand what’s causing your employees to jump ship, you can take action to rectify the situation.
What you can do to improve employee retention
After uncovering the reasons people leave, the ebook next focuses on the steps you can take to retain your people.
It provides a deep dive into three main areas:
- Finding the problem areas and at-risk employees in your organisation,
- Identifying burnout, and what to do about it,
- Retaining your people and winning the talent war.
Build trust & accountability with communication
The ebook covers actions you can take to immediately make tangible differences employees will appreciate and value, thus removing hot-button issues that motivate people to leave. However, no matter how well your organisation executes against these ideas and others like them, all will fail if employees aren’t aware of the opportunities you’ve created and the efforts you’ve made on their behalf. So lastly, we’ll cover how clear communication and follow-up can be used to rebuild trust and demonstrate that change is happening – both of which are crucial in convincing people to stay.
