IFA3 - Essential Elements of Employee Retention

Oct 27, 2017 1:30pm ‐ Oct 27, 2017 3:00pm


This session explores the extraordinarily high cost of employee turnover and offers some practical solutions to provide both the organization and the new employees a greater likelihood of having made a great mutual decision. Through both new employee orientation and onboarding, the process of connecting the new hire to the organization occurs. To the extent that we get it right, we greatly heighten our chances of retaining the new hire in our organization.

We'll talk about the investment we need to make if we wish to decrease employee turnover. And it doesn't end once the employee has been with your organization for a while.

We'll explore the power behind 'stay interviews' with all of our existing employees, and how our staff follow and advance through relationships.

  • Design a New Employee Orientation Program that introduces new hires to the organization, its key people, and policies and procedures.
  • Create a New Employee Onboarding Program which will set new employees up for success in their initial first few months.
  • Positively impact your organization's ability to retain its talent, increase employee engagement, and curb the expense associated with employee turnover.
