Talent retention must be priority for business.


56% of businesses have seen increased turnover. What are you doing stem the tide?

Improving retention of current employees helps save recruitment costs and avoids dips in performance as new staff come up to speed. Most employees are open about what they want and need. The majority want work-life balance, recognition for their contributions, for their opinions to be valued, opportunities for growth and career development, and autonomy over how they perform their job. These aren’t difficult benefits to provide.

What can you do?

  • Learn why people leave and take action to address this.
  • Drive a career development programme in your workplace to demonstrate that you value employees career goals.
  • Build a culture to deliver your business outcomes, to attract the right talent and to keep your talent on board and engaged.
  • Offer flexibility and remote and / or hybrid work models wherever possible.
  • Design work to unlock a responsive culture, where people want to show up and do great mahi.

Employee Value Proposition (EVP)

Your EVP is an internal promise to your employees that defines what people get from working for your company. It helps you build your brand’s internal and external perception and attract and retain talent for your organisation. We work alongside many of our members and non-members to help them develop a clear and unique EVP that attracts and retains the talent.

Succession planning is a critical component of your overall talent strategy.
