A Revolutionary New Approach to Retention: It’s Not HR’s Job

Duration: 90 minutes

Some companies think that retention is an “HR issue.” After all, HR is responsible for performance management and talent development, so when people leave it must be HR’s fault, right?

Here’s the truth: Retention isn’t HR’s job. It can’t be.

Why? (more details below)


WHY ATTEND

HR isn’t to blame for turnover.

Many organizations and HR professionals already know this. But even those organizations have a difficult time bridging the gap between recognizing the problem and doing something about it.

This webinar will show you exactly what to do about it.

In this session, nationally recognized retention and engagement expert Dick Finnegan will teach you how to place the responsibility for retention squarely on the shoulders of direct supervisors. And you’ll learn how to help them forecast and prevent turnover.

The end result? Turnover goes down because the RIGHT people, who can actually DO something to improve retention, are being held accountable.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this webinar, you will learn: 

  • Why direct supervisors must be responsible for turnover
  • How to empower each manager at your company to “own” their team’s retention 
  • How to gain executive support for the “supervisors own turnover” approach
  • Techniques for managers and supervisors to talk candidly with employees about retention 
  • A blueprint for reducing turnover that your managers can use immediately
