Episode Description

The buzz: Turnover? Oh no! Employee attrition is a fact of life staring your HR leaders in the eye, more often than ever due to escalating job mobility, social recruiting and talent poaching. You know that every employee will leave at some point. But it becomes painful for your organization when your prized top talent are the ones jumping ship without even a rumored whisper preceding their departure. The goal for your HR team is not to prevent all turnover, but to prevent the unplanned, unmanaged kind. How are today’s successful companies enticing their most valued human capital to stay? The experts speak. China Gorman, Great Place to Work: “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value” (Albert Einstein). Dr. Steven Hunt, SuccessFactors: “People don’t necessarily want to leave their company after two years, but you may need to create a compelling reason to stay.” Join us for Battling Attrition: How To Keep Good Employees?
