Changing demographic, economic and business conditions have made finding skilled and motivated employees more difficult. However, the question of how to retain employees is not a new one and has perplexed human resource professionals and managers for years. Many of the latest, trendy ideas to address the problem of retention are just that; trends. They are temporary “quick fixes” that may not be sustainable in the long run, especially if and/or when economic and business conditions shift again.
Key components in developing a retention strategy are helping employee’s recognize purpose, competent management and transparent communication practices, and well-rounded total rewards and employee development programs - all based on a clearly understood organizational culture. The common denominator among organizations that have succeeded in retaining employees is the ability to recognize the value of their employees and account for their needs while continuing to meet business goals and objectives.
