ABOUT THE SESSION
Keynote Presentation - Retention and Innovation – Two for the Price of One
Retention is the issue for too many employers. With loyalty seeming dead new employees seem to leave on whim. By understanding the mind set of employees we can increase retention in ways large and small. Increasing retention invariably increases innovation – a robust, proud and satisfied employee who feels their contribution is worthwhile will, indeed, provide new thinking and ideas. The challenge for organisation is to listen out to new idea, wherever they come from.
This presentation offers the issues from the employees perspective based on countless interviews over more than a decade and how employers can address these.
