      Having learned that 1 in 3 new hires leaves within the first 6 months, what do you think are the main reasons for this and what HR strategies would help to increase employee retention and reduce turnover?

        We have been struggling in a few areas to attract workforce. Specifically building officials and SCADA Tech’s. We offer an amazing benefits package, remote work options and flex schedules. Unfortunately, with high rents, minimal vacancies it does make it hard to attract those individuals. I think having a warm and welcoming place to work with like minded co-workers always helps!!

            I think it would help if the employer can help the employee on their individual journey to wherever their goal might be,. I am a business owner and am never able to retain anyone, but it’s not about money, training, time, effort, work, style, coworkers or place. I really think we are a stepping stone and nothing more. We’ve grasped that idea and work to help the employee to be the best candidate for their specific goal

              I think that when expectations are unclear or misaligned it can lead to miscommunication and dissatisfaction very quickly. It is important for HR and Management to be very clear about the expectations for the role, the team, and the organization immediately, so that new hire can perform accordingly. In the first 6 months, regular feedback is also necessary to clarify expectations, offer redirection and support.

                Michelle, can you share what your amazing benefits cover and what your benefits strategy is and how you are competing with your niche competitors?
