Retaining Top Employees

Course Overview

Organizations use various retention strategies and programs so employees can stay for a longer period of time with them. Organizations invest on the training of employees, therefore, when they leave organizations have to pay the cost. Successful employee retention starts when organizations think from the employee’s perspective. Employees have different desires and expectations from their organizations that need to be considered in order to ensure their retention. Most of the time, employees expect to receive a competitive salary package, desire to be treated in fair terms and seek a respectful status in the organization. The extent up to which they receive all of this, determines their motivation and performance at work. Therefore, organizations should use effective strategies to measure employee needs and should deploy measures to satisfy them so they stay with them for the longer period of time.
