Talent and HR News Weekly Update: Best of Retention

In the last of our "Best of" series, we're focusing on retention. Take a look at the best from our Talent and HR News Weekly Roundups in 2014 that cover anything having to do with retaining your employees. We'll be back next week with fresh news roundups for 2015!

1) Engage and retain staff in 2014 and beyond from HR Zone

"It’s a common misconception that an individual’s performance at work is based solely on just their capability. Whilst possessing the right skills and abilities is important, in today’s competitive business world, it is based on so much more than this.  The silent threat of ghost turnover - The period of economic recession played host to a stagnating pool of talent. Suffering from uncompetitive reward and constrained training and development budgets, staff stayed in their current roles, not because of job satisfaction but because of job security. This is known as ‘ghost turnover’ – employees who want to leave their current jobs but can’t due to a lack of alternative or secure opportunities."

Talent and HR News Weekly Update: Getting - and Keeping - the Right Employees

Attracting new employees is hard enough. It's a huge investment, and you could spend months or even years trying to find that diamond in the rough. Now that you found that diamond, it doesn't end there. Retaining the right employees is a whole other beast. This week's Talent and HR News Weekly update features the latest thinking around getting - and keeping - the right employees. 

1) So You've Hired Someone Great--Now What? from Inc.

"Over a recent breakfast meeting, a colleague, Marisa, was discussing her company's challenges in integrating newly hired people into their culture. She went on to describe candidates who aced every round of interviews and had buy-in from all levels of the company. In her opinion, such high-performers should successfully and seamlessly integrate into the organization's culture without assistance. She was perplexed why some of her new hires hadn't lived up to her expectations--failing to assimilate or just not turning out to be the motivated personalities she saw in the interviews."
