Help Them Stay: Leading for Staff Retention
Be purpose driven about retention as early as the hiring process, and reap the rewards of more cohesive, productive teams and decreased retention rates.
About This Session
You have a growing organization and tight schedules. What you need is more resources on it, and right NOW. The battle in today's highly competitive recruiting market is to find people, but we often don't pay enough attention to the second part of having enough people - keeping the ones we already have.
In this session, keynote speaker, leadership trainer, and long time technical leader and author Rob Vieira will explore the strategies he used to grow teams while maintaining a staggeringly low 4% turnover rate. Examples of some of the things Rob will look into key takeaways such as:
Planning for chemistry as much as skills
Measuring personal productivity by their impact on the team rather than direct output
The expense of turnover, and how it is typically more expensive than the money and time we try to "save"
How to anticipate problems and be prepared to fight for things that will, in turn, reduce turnover.
