Successful organizations realize talent management and employee engagement is critical in sustaining their leadership and growth in the marketplace. Attracting and retaining top talented employees in today’s labor market should be the highest priority.
60% of surveyed talent leaders are concerned they could lose key employees to their competitors. Many surveyed companies appear convinced that high potential talent that is not properly developed can be easily poached by competitors.

Employees who have an above average attitude toward their work and their employer will generate 38 percent higher customer satisfaction scores, 22% higher productivity, and 27% higher profits.
The Gallup Organization
Findings revealed 64 percent of employees said they were extremely likely to begin or increase the intensity of their job search. An additional 19 percent said they were somewhat likely to increase their search.
The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Wall Street Journal
Seventy-seven percent of companies said they do not have enough successors to their current senior-level managers already working in their organizations, according to a survey of 168 human resource managers at U.S. companies.

The Conference Board
“Good people see good bosses as the wind beneath their wings. . . Employees that lack the confidence in their bosses will leave the organization sooner than later.”
The Hay Group’s The Retention Dilemma
Employee Retention and Job Satisfaction
The cost of attracting, recruiting, hiring, training, and getting new people up to speed is tremendously more costly as well as more wasteful than most realize. Productivity is directly tied to employee retention.
Despite economic changes, the issue of employee retention is here to stay. The labor shortage that plagued employers at the height of the economic boom has not vanished. It may be off the radar now, but it is returning strong as ever. Successful organizations realize employee retention is integral to sustaining their leadership and growth in the marketplace. Those that fail to make employee retention a priority are at risk of losing their top talented people to the competition.
We can help you design an effective employee retention strategy that provides a comprehensive road map for not only attracting and keeping talented employees, but for motivating and engaging them to achieve a higher level of performance—saving organizations countless thousands of dollars.
