Course Description

Employee retention and loyalty is the biggest challenge organizations will face in the next decade. Attitudes about staying with an employer have changed radically over the course of the last 15 years and employers have failed to keep up with the trend in order to retain talent. People will stay given the right environments and reasons to do so.

Understanding those factors that build employee loyalty and drive employee retention is critical if an organization wishes to survive…and thrive in the new workplace. In this series, Jeff Kortes shows you the key drives in employee retention and how to go about using them to ensure your organization’s success in employee retention. Topics covered include:

Gathering Retention Intel:

Knowledge is power. Knowing why people are quitting and how to gather that information is essential. Without this knowledge, you are guessing about the reasons for employee turnover. Find out how to get this essential information.


It used to be called orientation, then it was called onboarding but now it’s assimilation. The ability to “absorb” people into the culture of an organization is essential to employee retention. Failure to do so will result in losing people in the early part of their employment.


Visibility is an incredible way to get to know your people, what makes them tick and develop a bond with them. Learn strategies to enhance your visibility so you can get to know your people and proactively prevent employee turnover.


Want to drive people out of your organization? Micromanage them! Learn how micromanaging drives people from an organization and what you can do to ensure that you are not micromanaging.


The ability to shut down the grapevine is a must in order to ensure that fear does not take hold and drive people to look for another job. Learn how to develop a systematic communication process that will improve retention as well as optimize performance of the organization.

Work More than Work:

Learn how the role of work has changed and how it affects employee retention. Building a culture that promotes that work is more than just work is a must in employee retention and how you can make work more than just work.

Role of Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Your EAP is a secret weapon when it comes to retaining people. Few people use their EAP effectively…if they even have one. Those that do, don’t use it as an employee retention strategy. Learn what makes a great EAP in this segment and how to use it to optimize its effectiveness in employee retention.


Learn why growth is so important to millennials as well as how to offer growth to your employees. Growth is not just about promotions…it is much more. Learn how to use growth as a way to keep your best people in this segment.
