Retaining Top Notch Employees

A company may have the best and brightest employees, but if a company doesn’t cater to the needs of its employees, keeping them can be a daunting task. According to statistics published by the Hay Group, employee turnover worldwide is expected to increase within the next five years. It is predicted to rise from 20.6 to 23.4% and the number of global departures in 2018 will stand at 192 million.

With millennials (individuals born in the early 1980s to early 2000s) projecting to make young-professionals-600up 50% of the workplace by 2020 and this number reaching 75% by 2025, the question on everyone’s mind is: “How do we retain our top-notch employees – millennials and senior hires?”

The following are “The 6 Steps to Retaining An Employee,” Forbes provides employers with six steps to help them retain employees.
