Employee retention happens at every phase of the employee experience.
You have a highly valued employee who you sense is looking for a new opportunity. You’d hate to lose them, but you know people are leaving jobs during this “Great Resignation.” How do you get them to consider the “Great Return” or even better, not leaving in the first place?
Today on Asking for a Friend, I speak with employee retention expert, Beverly Kaye, author of Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em, Getting Good People to Stay.

4:52 How do you handle the concern that people are leaving because they are less connected when working remotely?
