Best Practices for Staff Retention

Employee Retention and Recruitment is one of the most important and overlooked facets of running a successful organization. Research consistently finds that retaining top talent is institutional knowledge, high moral and a high-performance workforce. In contrast, employee turnover is a drain on the organizations staff and financial resources. Losing key employees can limit productivity, damage culture and cost as much or more than the departing employees salary, during the process of finding and training a replacement. Workplace dynamics involve the relationships of the workplace, including organizational, team and personal relationships. Today in recruiting and retaining the age-diverse workplace, there are four generations of workforce including veterans, ( boomers, generation X, generation Z, millennials). Each of these generations has their own set of values, styles, and work ethic. They bring their own skills and talents, which add a unique value to dynamic global corporate environment. Successfully recruiting and retaining the age-neutral workplace can can be achieved if we build a bridge between the generations to help them contribute to the future workforce. Leaders need to engage, mentor and transform these generations into an innovative, productive and socially responsive team members in the workforce.
