11.45am – Retention and Development of your Employees
Employee retention is important to organisations as it saves time and money, while increasing productivity and efficiency. Research has shown that for every employee lost, there will be a cost of approximately 6-9 months salary to replace them as well as the disruption and time invested to attract, recruit and onboard. That doesn’t account for the value lost through the quality of experienced employees. You can see how valuable your employees become to the organisation. In this two part workshop we will discuss the value of your employee, the importance of leadership and communication, and some top tips to help you implement an Employee Retention Strategy. Speaker: Sean Grant (Core Impact)
