Career Conversations

One of the biggest concerns for CEO’s around the world is retaining their top talent, and unsurprisingly so – staff turnover rates have been on the rise over the last decade.

As the War on Talent intensifies and the ‘Great Resignation’ looms, there remains a shortage of qualified and experienced candidates for many roles. So retaining your top talent has never been more critical!

Younger workers regularly scan online job sites for “great places to work.” Employees with growing families are thinking about parental leave and part-time work. Mid-career professionals are looking for interesting challenges. All of which can result in talent leaving your business.

This in turn leads to disruption, lack of continuity, and increased costs of recruitments and retraining. Sound familiar?

The loss of skills, customer relationships, and knocks to employee morale of high employee turnover can give rise to great direct and indirect costs.

The cost to replace your top talent and get them up to speed through training can be as much as 1.5 times the employee’s salary. This does not include all the other incidental costs such as recruiting a replacement, workspace, etc.

Gallup reports 71 percent of employees today are either not engaged or actively disengaged at work. This means only 29 percent of employees are truly engaged in their work.

The stats are indicating that over a quarter of your top talent right now, may well be considering exiting for pastures new. What would that cost your business? More importantly, what can you do about it?

PrimePersona Career Conversations can help.

I work with top talent across a variety of businesses, who can’t decide whether to stay or go and are maybe thinking of, or have already handed in their resignation.

Together we evaluate what has got them to this stage, what it is they are looking for, and then what next steps they need to take to fall back in love with their career.

To find out how I can help your team in particular, why not get in touch for an informal chat?

Invest in your talent before someone else does.

When employees and leaders feel like they are being invested in and have a clear purpose and way forwards, they are much more likely to stay.

So by investing in coaching for your top-performing talent you can help maintain the engagement and retain them in your business.
