Employee Retention

Group of business people smiling together in an office

Is your employee turnover increasing? There often is no silver bullet for improving employee retention. It can be a list of issues that are causing your best employees to leave from pay to overbearing managers, to a dysfunctional culture.


Your company may be experiencing the following:

  • Increasing employee turnover and the signs other employees are thinking about leaving
  • Too few members of your workforce are putting out discretionary effort—the kind that drives higher performance and innovation
  • Your technical expertise rests with only a handful of workers
  • Leaders who struggle to build relationships with today’s workers and inspire top performance
  • Stifling organizational cultures that are too top-down, bureaucratic and siloed.
  • Talent strategies, systems, technologies, and processes that do not create a dynamic employee experience and no longer meet the needs of your growing business

Do you believe that you are missing out on today’s improvements in talent strategy, such as:

  • Updated performance management approaches that build stronger relationships between leaders and employees, more efficient and innovative teams, and better business results
  • Collaborative and adaptive organizational cultures that have aligned workers to the mission and strategies of the organization and have employees that are constantly being creative, sharing new ideas with each other, prototyping, and implementing new innovation.
  • New leadership approaches to align and inspire a multicultural and multi-generational workforce which has new ideas about the work environment, wants to use of digital technology and apps, and is looking for solutions to have better work/life integration.
  • Competitive compensation and reward strategies that inspire extraordinary effort, innovation, and superior performance.
  • Digital work technologies that enable you to improve the problem-solving capability and results of teams, and also allow you to collect insightful analytics on the performance, strengths, and development areas of your workforce.
  • New approaches to more objectively accurately identify and develop your high potential leaders and future technical experts.

Finally, does your company know how to pull it together to create a dynamic employer brand and employee value proposition (as dynamic as your company brand and value to your customers) to attract, motivate and retain today’s workforce?

Powerful employer brands  (which are more than just slick marketing) and exciting employee experiences are what drives the real value.


A company’s talent strategy and culture can make or break a company and enable it to retain its best workers even during competitive times.

Most executives don’t understand that companies with strong talent strategies have significantly better financial performance and lead their industries by creating continuing value.

  • McKinsey and Company report that well-run talent management systems improve the bottom line (with 22% higher shareholder returns than bottom quartile performers) and are the critical driver of corporate performance.
  • The Hackett Group found that companies with more mature talent management capabilities reap strong bottom-line benefits, including earnings that are 18% higher than typical Global 1000 companies.

Building robust talent strategies are the key to creating companies that are innovative, can quickly implement business strategy, and transition through change.
