Retaining Staff is a Tangible Outcome for your Business

Research suggests nearly 25 per cent of Australian employees will change jobs in any given year. And when you consider staff turnover costs can be up over 150 per cent of a person's annual salary it makes sense that retaining employees should be a high priority for your business. There is a clear link between effective staff retention strategies and well-performing companies. If you can recruit and retain good people, you establish a strong competitive advantage. It’s important to take the time and energy to invest in keeping your staff happy, motivated and productive.

Poor management, inadequate training and lack of career development are often cited as reasons staff leave their current employment for better opportunities elsewhere.
