How to Retain Your Best Employees and Reduce Turnover

Approved for 1.25 SHRM PDC's and 1.25 HRCI (General) Credits

Employee engagement is the simplest way to improve retention, increase referrals, and reduce turnover. This helps in any economy, but today it makes all the difference. So, how can you make sure you’re not losing your best employees faster than you’re able to attract new talent? If you don’t want to be fighting the war for talent on two fronts at once, you need both a good defense and a strong offense.

Now is the time to make sure your culture is in great shape so you can improve employee retention and reduce employee turnover. Top Workplaces already do.

Top Workplaces attract new talent and limit turnover with the strength of an intentional culture. Their employees are engaged – and they want to stay put. In fact, some of these standout organizations report turnover rates as low as 14 percent.

Top Workplaces excel at a lot of things, including recruiting and employee retention. So, how do they build and nurture such strong cultures? At Energage, we’ve studied the best practices of Top Workplaces. After 12 years of research, we’ve identified the 15 culture drivers that most predictably lead to employee engagement.

In this interactive session, we’ll present our findings, share best practices, and work together to establish takeaways that will help you get intentional about culture.

It was a natural transition because her personal passion aligns with the Energage purpose of making the world a better place to work together. With a Bachelor’s in Sociology and early experience in social work, Lisa found her skills transferable to business in the HR function. She worked at small- to midsize- companies in a variety of industries and found her niche at rapid-growth technology firms that focus on building great cultures.
