Retention Strategies: How to Keep Your Top Talent from Becoming Someone Else’s

Wednesday, August 17, 2022

Lisa Ryan, CSP

Today's workplace was facing a talent shortage, an aging workforce, and an inadequate pipeline of younger workers before the pandemic. Today, it's even more crucial to RETAIN the employees that you already have on your team. Now that employees have found they have lots of options when it comes to how, when, and where they can get their work done, your business needs ways to adjust to this new work environment.

Companies that succeed in the post-pandemic economy, are those that figure out how to master technology, community, and collaboration. Yes, employees may still have to show up in person to get some jobs done, but business owners may need to adjust and adapt to new ways of using technology and communicating with employees and their leadership teams.

Good news! By participating in this program your participants will discover:

  • How the pandemic has changed business for good – and how to take advantage of those changes
  • How to connect with employees from both a personal and professional standpoint during trying times
  • Why communication is more critical than ever before – and how to make sure you’re doing it the right way
  • Why ignoring employees’ personal challenges will come back to haunt you

It’s going to be awhile before we figure out what the next normal is going to be, but whatever those changes are – there is no more “business as usual.” The only thing we know for certain right now is that things are going to change.

If you want to keep your top talent from becoming someone else’s, it’s time to master a few simple strategies now … and reap the rewards for years to come.
