Retention – What We Need To Know Training and Development Best practice techniques towards training and development include: meaningful tuition reimbursement programs; salary adjustments for the attainment of certifications and degrees; tapping skilled employees to teach and mentor; the opportunity to attend internal and external workshops; and rewards for the publishing of articles and books and for presenting at professional conferences.

11 11© 2006 Management Recruiters International, Inc. An Equal Opportunity Employer. Retention – What We Need To Know Strong Compensation & Benefits Program Employers will always be faced with two great dilemmas - the loss of excellent employees and increasing salary costs; Retaining mechanisms can include: recognizing outstanding employees by broadening salary gaps; formulating a quick-response pay adjustment system; and flexible working hours

12 12© 2006 Management Recruiters International, Inc. An Equal Opportunity Employer. Retention – What We Need To Know Ongoing Career Opportunities Firms need to prioritise their development of strong in-house talent channels if they wish to keep pace with both business growth and external competitors; Failure to do so will result in lost employees and over-promoting of staff incapable of performing at higher levels; HR needs to define and clarify ‘success’ in a current and future role and map, train and develop accordingly; Such approaches will strengthen an organisation and provide staff with future career opportunities without having to look outside the firm; and To be successful, however, companies will need to align both business and staff needs for continuous growth and development.
