Course Description

In today's aggressive business environment remaining competitive is "top of mind" for most executives. To remain competitive, you have to hire truly talented people and then you have to keep them. Turnover is not only costly in terms of replacement expense; it impacts productivity, and it is demoralising to other team members when they see good people leaving the organisation.

Most leaders are unaware of the total disruptive and financial nature of the loss of a valued team member. Hidden costs and impacts are often overlooked. For example, a team member does not normally just up and leave an organisation. A team member actually considers leaving three to six months before resigning, and productivity declines because the individual is no longer a committed team member. This impacts other team members and team morale.
Also, most team leaders need to realise the significant leverage that they have to combat staff turnover.
Retaining Winning Talent helps team leaders accept, that in the majority of situations, team members quit their team leader, not their organisation. Retaining Winning Talent helps that leader take productive steps to retain team members.
The programme provides skills, tools, and a research-based approach that helps team leaders rate the attrition risk of each team member, surface individual team members' retention needs, increase the level of commitment from each team member, and, most importantly, develop and implement a Retention Action Plan designed to increase retention for the entire team.
Retaining Winning Talent is a workshop that focuses on one of the most important assets of any organisation - its team leaders and their impact on retaining key team members.

• Describe the scope, severity and cost of attrition
