The retention of valued employees is essential for an agency to achieve its mission. Failing to properly address employee turnover can lead to:
- Direct and indirect costs associated with turnover.
- Loss of organizational knowledge.
- Disruption of customer services.
- Loss of time spent training new staff.
To increase employee retention, organizations must first determine why employees are leaving. One tool to determine this is a stay survey.
Once the root cause of turnover is determined, a variety of options exist for agencies to use to increase employee retention. The links below provide information about some of these options.
