Employee retention is top-of-mind for most organizations, as it should be! Turnover disrupts the flow of a functioning workforce and can lower team morale. The cost of turnover is also quite expensive, directly impacting your business’s bottom line. 

We have some good news and not-so-good news. Let’s start with the latter: a recent analysis from Gallup uncovered that nearly half of U.S. employees are actively job searching or looking out for opportunities. Meanwhile, 1 in 4 people are planning to full-out quit in 2022. 

Here’s the good news: While turnover is a normal occurrence in every organization, there is a lot in your control. 52% of employees leaving on their own accord say their manager could have done something to keep them around for longer. Let’s focus on what managers can do now to prevent their employees from leaving too soon later.

The checklist includes these sections and a handful of actions for each!

          ✔️Nail onboarding
          ✔️Deliver regular recognition
          ✔️Gather and act on employee feedback
          ✔️Become a better coach
          ✔️ Amplify the company culture
