Retaining Your Best Employees . . . Is Your Corporate Culture Helping or Hurting?
One of the biggest challenges in organizations these days is recruitment and retention of talented employees.
Talent Shortage: Manpower surveyed 33,000 employers across 33 countries in 2006. 40% of employers worldwide are having difficulty filling positions due to the lack of suitable talent available in their markets. 81% expect the problem to get worse in the coming years.
Employee Turnover: In current surveys, 39% of U.S employees indicated that they are considering actively seeking a new job in 2007. And two-thirds of employed U.S. working adults indicated they are open to changing jobs if an opportunity presents itself.
One of your most effective tools to combat turnover is a strong corporate culture that creates a compelling place to work. Peg Neuhauser will give you practical, down-to-earth advice about how to build a high-retention workplace culture.
