Employee Retention

  • Employee Retention
    Retaining experienced, high-performance employees is one of the keys to strategic success, no matter the industry or type of organization.
    Most companies and organizations operate smoothly and efficiently because of the thousands of little systems, procedures, and workarounds its employees develop over time through on-the-job experiences. Few of these spontaneous systems and procedures are documented or written down anywhere. When an experienced employee leaves, productivity declines and a few things begin to break. When many experienced employees leave, productivity declines greatly and almost everything starts to break. So, keeping experienced employees contributes to the productivity of an organization and to the quality of the products or services delivered by the organization. Hence, senior executives in most companies are keen to minimize employee turnover.
  • Secondary research on general and industry employment trends.
  • Employee database analytics to explore who’s leaving and who’s staying, and determine the predictor variables.
  • Qualitative research (focus groups, depth interviews, ethnography) to understand employee’s needs, perceptions, and hopes at a deep level, and identify the major factors related to retention.
  • Employee surveys to precisely measure employee awareness levels, preferences, needs, and hopes.
  • Conjoint and choice modeling experiments to optimize benefits packages (health benefits, vacation and days-off benefits, etc.)
  • Employee separation surveys to track the real reasons employees leave.
