8 What is the Retention Toolkit The Retention Toolkit is a set of web-based tools and discussion guidelines designed to help managers and supervisors conduct interviews and career discussions with staff that are at risk of leaving the University for other opportunities. The tools include resources for employees to inventory their career aspirations and focus their career development plans.
