Is Improving Retention of Your Top Performers and Reducing High Turnover Costs Important to Your CEO?

Research from The Harvard Business Review, Fortune magazine, and the global CEO organization, Vistage International, indicates that “attracting, retaining, and developing top talent” is the #1 priority of CEOs of companies with more than 100 employees.

The Harvard Business Review conducted a study of 200 well-established management practices at 160 companies over a ten-year period. This research found that "the winners achieve deep bench strength. It’s cheaper and more reliable to develop stars than to buy them. The best companies create top-of-the-line training programs to hold onto talented employees and develop more of them."

Here are some important questions for you and your management team to consider:

  • Have you had difficulty retaining high-performing executives?
  • Have you tried to improve retention and reduce the high costs of turnover – but you're still not satisfied?
  • Are you ready to help your best managers re-engage and re-commit to generating stronger bottom-line results?
  • Are you ready to implement a breakthrough career development program to attract, develop and retain top talent?
  • Would you like to get a better return on your Human Resource investment, and increase your company's marketplace success?

According to a study of more than 1 million employees at 330 companies worldwide by the Hay Group, summarized in a white paper entitled The Retention Dilemma:

“Yes, money matters, but it is not really about money. If you do not know why people are leaving, you cannot possibly stop the bleeding. What people want most is to feel their careers are moving forward.”

Since The Career Potential Seminar puts career development right back into the hands of your top managers and high-potential employees, it has a direct impact on your organization’s ability to retain top talent.

Not Sure if Investing in Retention Makes Sense for Your Organization?

Forget the cost of turnover – consider your return on retention! There are many “cost of turnover” calculators on the web, which are overly complicated, confusing, and difficult to complete. Why? Because employee turnover has many costs, both direct and indirect. More on that in a moment. First, let’s talk about your organization’s return on retention.

Turnover Costs are Misleading. The value of retaining one strong manager is many times greater than the cost of losing one, because keeping a valued employee for a long period of time can save 10, 20 or more “turnovers” in that job.
