Employee Engagement



Employee Turnover is considered to be the silent killer of productivity in businesses today, yet managers have limited knowledge on why people join, stay and leave organisations. International research has indicated that the cost of replacing a productive employee is equivalent to 65% annual salary. Too many companies are not considering the hard work that went into recruiting employees. Intelligent organisations are those that build upon their original investment by assisting employees in gaining new skills as well as by preparing them to face greater challenges through increased responsibility. Retaining and engaging high performing employees build strong organisational culture and improve performance and morale internally. Retaining top talent is crucial as it allows companies to gain and maintain a competitive advantage in markets. It is crucial therefore for managers to be equipped with theoretical knowledge and practical solutions to curb the negative effects of high turnover and to maximise retention of key employees.
