The Employee Experience
FACT OR FICTION: RETENTION STRATEGIES
For our 2018 programming year, Lancaster SHRM is proud to present a series of breakfast programs focused on The Employee Experience: From Recruitment to Separation.
In this era where career longevity is on the decline and talent moves around, employee retention needs to be on every HR professional’s radar. For most companies, retention doesn’t happen by accident; it’s crafted from knowledge of the workforce and intentional planning to develop a culture where team members thrive. From educating executives on the ROI of retention plans to leading the charge in implementing changes, HR has a lot to contribute to this crucial objective.
With so much information available, HR professionals must sort through what is fact or myth, especially as it relates to their particular workforce. After determining broad goals and relatable information, HR and organizational leaders can partner to shift cultures and create programs aimed at keeping talented top performers engaged and actively contributing to the company’s mission and bottom line. Lastly, retention isn’t a once and done project; culture inputs and programs must continue to be reviewed for efficiency and revisions made as feedback, economies, and employee groups change.
Topics covered will include:
- Why having a retention plan matters to an organization and how to communicate its importance to senior leadership.
- How different factors influence retention planning (scope, industry, generational workforce, etc.).
- Starting points and ideas for evaluating, creating, and improving retention strategies.
