In 2011, only 35% of surveyed employees planned to stay with their current employer for the next year. One year later, 80% expect to stay. Strategies to reduce turnover seem to be working.
Nearly one-third of employees say they’re not satisfied with their jobs, which indicates many plan to stay—but perhaps for the wrong reasons. Shift retention strategies to improving job satisfaction—especially for employees with critical skills and high potential.
Retention starts with the C-suite and extends through every level of management. Employees who plan to stay are more likely to have confidence and trust in their leaders.
Employees value meaningful work over other retention initiatives. Employees who report using their talents on the job are more likely to plan to stay with their employer.
Employees who have been with their company less than two years are most likely to consider leaving. Strengthen on-boarding programs to increase employee engagement and commitment.
