Increase and Sustain Your Employee Retention
Preventing attrition requires meaningful employee engagement. Create positive employee experiences and a strategy based on truly comprehending their needs for career growth
How do I increase employee retention?
- Listen to employee experiences and build in opportunities for active listening
- Prioritize employee feedback and accountability rather than review and blame
- Make way for the negative stories as well as positive ones: a career-growth focus can shift a culture of employee burnout
Empower with Accountability
- Craft, clarify, and communicate clear financial results: a “same page” for your employees to motivate around
- Formalize career growth with regular employee feedback opportunities that engage your people to own results through shared beliefs
- Recognize employee wins — create meaningful ways to feature success stories across the organization
Create a Culture of Growth
- Focus on results across teams and keep connecting with employee experiences without defensiveness
- Experiences and employee feedback processes should, for the most part, reflect your organization’s beliefs in a healthy workplace culture
- Acknowledge resistance to change: even your own (it’s human nature)
- When you pick up on employee burnout or quiet quitting, dive into what’s working and what’s not
- What worked before might be revised or replaced by something more aligned with what your employees need from a culture of growth — for example, letting go of the standard performance review in favor of ongoing feedback exchanges
Healthcare: Driving Retention in Challenging Times
By looking closely at the healthcare sector, we find persuasive indicators of what will (and what won’t) drive employee retention.
The national hospital turnover rate currently sits at over 25 percent. And, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 20% of healthcare workers have left their field altogether.
In this webinar, our clients MercyOne, NOAH, Inova Health System, and Cascade Living Group discuss how strengthening culture redresses high attrition through:
- a focus on and integration of positive recognition across teams and staff
- an alignment on desired results
- a transparency of expectations
- an investment in leadership and professional development in the high-stress care environments
Watch our webinar to hear how MercyOne, NOAH, Inova Hospital System, and Cascade Living Group fortified employee retention within hospitals, outreach centers, and senior care communities by activating the solutions above.
