For a manager, the only thing worse than challenging goals is a staff that's bleeding talent. Building a strategic plan is all but impossible if your employee numbers are anything but stable. And when you lose someone – especially someone good that could have been great, it can be hard to grasp why, how to fix it, and what the solutions are.
Employee Development As Retention Strategy answers two key questions: What does it take to keep your talent in the team? And once that talent is there, how do you get it ready for what's NOW and what's NEXT?
Through this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Define the relationship between employee engagement, employee retention, and employee development.
- Compare, contrast, and link Feedback and Coaching.
- Identify Growth Cues or signs that development is needed.
- Analyze employee performance towards designing and applying development approaches that work.
