What is Employee Retention?

‘Employee retention’ refers to an organisation’s ability to keep its employees within the company for an extended period. It is a critical metric for businesses because retaining skilled and experienced employees can lead to improved productivity, reduced recruitment and training costs, and a more stable work environment. 

Employee retention strategies often involve creating a positive workplace culture, offering competitive compensation and benefits, providing opportunities for growth and development, and addressing any issues that may lead employees to leave the organisation voluntarily. High employee retention rates are generally seen as a sign of a healthy and successful organisation, while high turnover rates can be costly and disruptive.
