Keeping your top talent is critical to the success of your business. When employees leave, it can be costly and time-consuming to find and train a replacement. In this blog post, we will discuss staff retention strategies that you can use to retain your best employees.
Many companies make the mistake of spending months building a pipeline for recruiting the very best people, but then spend little time actually onboarding them to make sure they are successful.
#1 – Poor onboarding – This means being prepared
Who isn’t nervous, scared on their first day at work?
#2 – Not having clearly defined goals, tasks and objectives
Help them deliver small wins on the first day and every day thereafter.
#3 – Frequently check in
How was the 1st week and so on. Be open to honest feedback. New eyes looking over broken or damaged processes can be a blessing in disguise.
The unintended consequence of not doing this… is the feeling of not being valued…..
So the 31% make their excuses, find another job and leave, most often before they get effective in the new role.
Leaving you and your teams with even bigger problems and resourcing gaps!
Don’t feel bad… Most organisations are struggling to onboard excellently.
Lots of organisations turn a blind eye and do not seek the truth when people leave. Fewer still accept the truth and do anything to fix it. Few measure the burden and financial impact which when calculated enable teams to request small budgets to turn the tide and make an exponential difference to onboarding outcomes and employee retention in general.
Have you ever calculated the impact? This impact can be huge even for low-level employees and like a stone thrown into a pond the ripples can extend far and wide from customers, operations, fellow team members and then onto your brand reputation. As one new hire leaves, someone else has to pick up the slack as the process starts again.
We help our clients understand this and keep track of important onboarding and retention data automatically. Additionally, when the time comes most our clients have an off-boarding process tied into the system so they can learn and adapt.

Each type of employee training has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to choose the right type of employee training for the specific needs of the company and its employees.

Employee training is important for 5 key reasons:
For all of these reasons, employee training is an essential part of any successful business.
The most common type of employee training is on-the-job training. This type of training generally takes place at the workplace and is conducted by a supervisor or more experienced employee. On-the-job training can be an effective way to learn new skills, as it allows employees to gain hands-on experience in a real work environment. However, it can also be time-consuming and disruptive to workflows. As a result, many companies use a combination of on-the-job and off-the-job training methods to provide employees with the skills they need to be successful.
Our mission with the Create LMS platform is to reduce the burden, time, and cost for both instructors and learners. We strive to make employee training easy and enjoyable.
