2:35pm-3:10pm EDT Turning the Great Resignation into The Great Retention

General Session

Retaining your best employees has always been a top priority, but now more than ever it has become top of mind for senior executives. We are currently experiencing the perfect storm of a labor shortage, a skills shortage, the Great Resignation, and the mass exodus of Baby Boomers from the workforce. The best way to learn how to drive retention is to first understand what drives turnover. In this session, we will examine the real reasons why employees leave. Once we know that, driving retention is simple: just eliminate the turnover factors--IF you have the will to do it. 

In this session, you will learn:

  • Proven techniques for driving retention
  • What the data tells us about The Great Resignation
  • How to analyze and act on data from engagement surveys and exit interviews
