Staying Power

Why your employees leave and how to keep them longer

While some of today’s workforce is made up of deep-rooted, dependable staff, a larger portion of roles are transitioning into revolving doors of employee turnover. This impacts levels of customer service, productivity and profitability.

The only way for organizations to successfully and sustainably face the new realities of today’s workforce and the evolution of employee expectations is through a deep understanding of how to effectively hire and manage shorter-term workers who have a different view of the workplace.

This insightful, breakthrough book by Cara Silletto and contributing author Leah Brown is designed to help leaders at all levels discover exactly how our workforce has changed over time, why employers are struggling to keep talent and how to gain better staffing stability.

In this time of intense competition for talent, Magnet Culture provided wonderful insight to our leadership team on the macro elements impacting the labor market, especially generational changes, as well as specific recommendations to address changing workforce expectations and needs.

Workforce Wake-Up Call:

How Many Must Leave Before Retention Becomes a True Priority?

Is employee turnover keeping you up at night? What’s going on exactly? Let me guess…

  • Managers’ plates are too full to do it all
  • There’s no time for leadership and staff development
  • The disconnect is growing between leaders and staff

The correlation between ineffective managers and increased turnover is no coincidence. The problems caused by low retention prevent managers from BEING managers and turnover increases when managers aren’t properly managing. It’s a vicious cycle! Now’s the time for a wake-up call so we can stop the revolving door by making managers more effective.

As we navigate a tremendously challenging talent market, we’ve found a wealth of valuable strategies to improve employee retention in Cara’s message.

Redefining Employee Retention

Embracing a New Approach to Regain Staffing Stability

Are you beyond frustrated employee turnover is devastating your bottom line? Let me guess…

  • Current operations aren’t sustainable with high turnover
  • Managers continue scrambling to fill shifts
  • There’s no time to address the turnover problem

We used to throw around the term “workforce crisis” because we thought times were tough before the pandemic. We had no idea how bad it could get. It’s time to face the facts and plan for the inevitable employee churn we cannot eliminate. Operationalizing turnover allows organizations to take control and make realistic retention goals moving forward.

Cara’s message addressed the reality of today’s complex staffing situation and offered the hope and practical advice I needed to turn things around. We all have turnover, but she gave the creative solutions we employers need to slow the revolving door and keep our staff longer!

Millennial Mindset

Why Today’s Young Workforce Thinks Differently

Is the generational gap in your office widening every day? Let me guess…

  • Managers see new hires as lazy and entitled
  • New hires don’t think they need to pay their dues
  • Rising stars leave after just 18 months

Sound familiar? It’s no secret millennials (born 1981 – 1996) have a different definition of professionalism. Do you understand why? Great managers do!

Magnet Culture‘s approach to retention is both strategic and practical, giving business leaders a clear understanding of why change is so important, what those changes need to be, and how to take immediate action.
