What is employee retention?

Employee retention is an essential part of workforce management. It refers to the ability of an organization to retain its employees over a period of time. Programs catered to employee retention focus on creating a positive work environment, implementing effective policies, and offering attractive incentives to encourage employees to stay with the organization for the long term.

To say that employee retention is vital for the overall success of a business is an understatement — maintaining the loyalty of employees results in a stable workforce with a deep understanding of the organization’s goals, values, and operations. This continuity enables the company to maintain productivity, reduce recruitment costs, preserve institutional knowledge, and even enhance their services and customer satisfaction.

What is staff retention?

Employee retention as solution to high turnover rate

Employee retention is a direct counter to high turnover rate, which is an undesirable situation where a significant number of people leave the business within a certain time frame. Here’s why high turnover rate is considered detrimental to businesses:

• High turnover necessitates frequent recruitment efforts, increasing the associated costs for sourcing, screening, and hiring new employees.

• When experienced employees leave, they take with them valuable institutional knowledge and expertise, which can ultimately disrupt workflow, hinder productivity, and impact the quality of work delivered by the remaining employees.

• A high turnover trend can have a direct impact on customer service and satisfaction, especially when employees with established relationships with customers leave.

• Companies that experience high turnover rates often face difficulties in finding suitable candidates to fill roles, as their brand and reputation come into question.

• Continuity and consistency in decision-making and implementation suffer, hindering the company’s ability to achieve its goals and objectives.

By employing retention strategies, businesses and organizations can prevent the risks associated with high turnover rate. They can create a culture and environment that fosters not just loyalty from their employees but also engagement and job satisfaction, which would significantly help them achieve their goals.

    Best Employment Retention Strategies

    Many businesses do not realize that it all starts with hiring the right people for the job. High turnover rates might not necessarily mean that a business has a poor work culture — in some cases, the gap starts with the failure to recruit a candidate that is truly fit for the role. Recruitment services providers can help on this end, as they have the expertise to match candidates with the right position based on their experience and skill sets.

    Still, even with the best talent and people, businesses must actively create an environment that nurtures growth and provides rewards for their employees. Employee retention service providers can offer valuable insights and expertise in the following areas to help companies improve their retention strategies

    In-house training programs to support career growth

    Employees are more likely to stay with organizations that offer opportunities for professional growth and advancement. Providing career development programs, mentoring initiatives, training opportunities, and clear career paths demonstrates a commitment to employee growth and retention.

    Recognition and reward

    Recognizing and appreciating the contributions of employees is essential in fostering a positive, friendly, and supportive work environment where everyone feels acknowledged and encouraged to grow within the organization. By implementing formal and informal recognition programs, celebrating achievements publicly, and offering rewards such as bonuses or incentives, businesses can effectively boost morale, instill a sense of value, and demonstrate genuine appreciation for their employees’ efforts.

    Feedback on compensation and benefits

    Offering competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits packages is a fundamental retention strategy but one way to make this better is ensuring regular reviews and adjustments based on market standards. Employee retention service providers can help businesses revise their pay brackets, provide a more apt system in providing performance-based bonuses, and get feedback from employees about their current compensation.

    Flexible Work Arrangements

    The work-from-home trend during the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to linger — it is expected for businesses to be flexible when it comes to how employees can work. For many businesses, giving employees the opportunity to balance their work and personal lives through remote work options, flexible hours, or compressed work can increase job satisfaction and loyalty.

    Additional benefits

    Employee retention service providers can help companies identify other potential benefits that are outside the traditional ones — not only will this help in retention, it will also be a unique selling point of a business against its competitors, allowing them to attract quality candidates. Some of these extraordinary benefits include:

    Paid volunteer time – Allowing employees to volunteer to causes they care about can foster a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
    Wellness programs – Examples of these are gym memberships, onsite fitness classes, meditation or mindfulness programs, mental health support, and counseling services.
    Retirement savings plan – Employees will be encouraged to stay in a company that would help them save for their retirement.
    Incentive stock options – With this benefit, companies allow employees to purchase a company stock at a predetermined price, which may come with preferential tax treatment. By essentially sharing the company to the employees, this benefit contributes to a sense of belongingness and loyalty.
    Sabbatical leaves – This involves offering employees extended leave, either paid or unpaid, after a certain number of years of service, giving them the opportunity to recharge, pursue personal interests, further their studies, or engage in professional development activities.

    De Vore Testimonials

    • Finally a real headhunter! When I worked with other recruiters in the past, I discovered they were primarily reaching out to active job seekers that already had their resumes posted online. I was pleased to learn that De Vore doesn't take that typical lazy approach, they actually reach out to candidates specific to your company's openings and ensure they are the best fit possible for the position. In fact, they screen them thoroughly so there are no surprises and even check all of their references in advance. I think the best aspect of their service is they offer a 120 day guarantee and furthermore rates much cheaper than what I've been quoted by other agencies in the past.

    • Just spoke with the owner of this wonderful small business, Sean was very helpful, and clearly had nothing to do with these awful reviews about his company. A former employee is slandering his name, please don’t let someone who hasn’t worked for this company in years guide you away from using his services. A+ to the team at deVore.

    • Sean DeVore is a hard working father of two who maintains no ties with past employees who have gone on to say awful things. He stands for liberty and human rights, and carries good values in his practice. Low ratings here reflect a misunderstanding perpetuated by internet tabloids and a single ex-employee who has long been shut out completely from the de Vore enterprise. I would recommend this company for anyone seeking recruiting, especially after speaking with Sean about the integrity he maintains in his business and clientele.

    • Hey Sean,

      Also copying Heather so that she is in the loop.
      Bita is EXACTLY what our facility needs. We have been working for a while at changing our image. She has joined us at precisely the right time. She is knowledgeable (extremely), hard working and committed to Quality Care. Because she is new, some leadership is challenging her, but she can handle it. The licensed nurses and CNAs LOVE her. She already has had a very positive impact.

      I am extremely grateful....

    • 5 star ratingExpert, diligent, professional are nice adjectives to describe the service I received at De Vore Recruiting, none are the reason they received the 5 star rating. Sean and his crew treated me like a person and not a number, they were genuinely concerned about me and my employment status. They took the time to get to know me and then took the time to try and find the right fit.
      Anyone looking for a career move(not just a job) then use De Vore they will match you with your dream job.
