Retention

Noelle Murphy

Editor's message: Staff retention relates to an employer’s strategy to manage healthy levels of labour turnover and retain employees. If labour turnover is too high or the most valuable employees are leaving, this can damage organisational performance.

Managing staff retention effectively is central to the health and success of any organisation. Even in sectors that do not experience a high level of staff churn or suffer from acute skills shortages, proactively managing the retention of key employees can make a significant difference to business performance.
