A Culture of Employee Retention

What kind of culture boosts employee retention?

Our guide – Recruit, Retain, Reward – Winning the War for Talent includes research of more than 850 employees. Respondents said that the four pillars of the Employee Experience –– meaning (71%), connection (66%), impact (67%) and appreciation (74%) –– affected how long they would stay in a job.

Appreciation and connection are particularly important. Over one-third of these employees left jobs because they didn’t feel appreciated or connected with their team or manager. Additionally, more than half of employees stated that they had left jobs because they didn’t see an opportunity for growth.

So, how exactly do you build these pillars into a culture of retention? Focus on a high-quality employee experience rich in growth opportunities.

Here are tips for doing just that:

  • Train managers to have regular one-on-ones where they help employees set goals and review progress so employees can see their ongoing growth and accomplishments.
  • Reward employees for organic, on-the-job learning and growth. Give them opportunities to build their skillset.
  • Invest in employee-designed, team-building activities.
  • Create and communicate a clear set of corporate values.
  • Use an employee experience platform to create a culture rich in the four pillars of the employee experience.
