Course Description

High turnover can be costly for companies. Gallup reports the high cost of employee turnover can cost a company up to two times an employee's salary. Another study illustrated the negative impact on employee morale, productivity, and company culture.

Groups including the Hogan Assessments define employee engagement as the degree to which employees think, feel, and act in ways that indicate a commitment to the organization. High levels of employee engagement foster customer loyalty and improve organizational performance. The presentation will cover why employees leave and the reasons for employee resignations.

An organization's focus on employee development and skills training are key factors in improving employee engagement. For example, employees are more engaged when their immediate manager uses a coaching or mentoring style. In this webinar, attendees will learn the difference between coaching and mentoring and how to use each effectively among other skills that assist with developing and retaining employees.
