WHY THIS TOPIC IS IMPORTANT FOR CEOs AND THEIR COMPANIES
Great places to work differentiate themselves and benefit from the ability to attract, retain and develop talent. Turnover rates with loss of key talent impact the bottom line heavily with loss of productivity, time and revenue. The effects create loss of trust, innovation and motivation in the workplace.
QUESTIONS THE CEO SHOULD BE ASKING
– Since it is so hard to find and retain employees, do I have a plan to execute on making this a strategic success?
– Why are my employees really staying or leaving the company?
– What can I be doing to create a great place to work?
SPECIFIC TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES YOU WILL PRACTICE
– Examine the REAL results of your present retention approach and gaps in present performance and desired results
– Explore and select 3 essential elements of hiring and on-boarding to implement that are critical to your organization’s increased success
– Begin to formulate your organization’s talent retention plan to increase your reputation as “the employer of choice”
In the upcoming session in July, we will explore how differentiating your organization as the Employer of Choice can improve your organizational success. One element we will examine is how you retain key talent.
In preparation for this session, please complete the retention assessment here. This self-assessment will help you get a sense of how your behaviors as a leader might influence retention in your organization. Check either Yes or No for each of the 15 questions on the downloadable documented located here, then see the instructions at the bottom for interpreting your results.
