Everywhere you turn, people are talking about the logistics of returning to the workplace or vaccinating their workforce. But one piece that’s missing from the conversation is the high potential for turnover once hiring resumes and options for employment expand. After all, when Human Resource Executive is predicting a turnover tsunami, it’s time to engage in meaningful retention conversations.
Retention Issues Look Different This Year
It goes without saying that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on all of us in many different ways. Retention is no exception. A year of remote existence has caused many to reflect on their strengths, their goals, and what they are (or aren’t) getting out of their current roles or workplaces. And when the world opens back up (and perhaps even before then), we may find that these great employees are heading for the exits in search of greater challenges.
Engaging in Retention Conversations
If you’re worried about what lies ahead, you’re not alone. But high turnover among top employees is not a foregone conclusion. So, how to you retain and engage your best leaders? Unsurprisingly, the answers lie in having engaging, proactive, and meaningful conversations. Asking great questions, and really listening to the answers.
In our latest webinar, David Rowan, Ph.D. and Marianne Whelchel provide a timely and engaging look at what you can do now to keep your best people satisfied, even in the face of the oncoming storm.
