Should I Stay or Should I Go?

March 31, 2011

It seems that everyday we read a new article or see the results from the latest survey telling us that  49% – 67% – 84% (!) –  of employees across the US have said they’re contemplating changing jobs.  Some of these employees are merely testing the waters and keeping their options open, but some are fully prepared to bolt from your organization.

So what to do?  How about focusing on retention, otherwise known as ‘keeping the good people around?’

To kick-start some thinking, check out the free eBook titled “Where do you think you’re going? A guide to employee retention” put together by Ben Eubanks from UpstartHR.

Special thanks to Shauna Moerke for promoting the guide through the HR Carnival channel.   Check out the contributors who’ve put together some great content: Tim Sackett, Heather Vogel, Benjamin McCall, Chris Ferdinandi, Paul Hebert, Laura Schroeder, Dave Ryan, Keith McIlvaine, Stuart at 1.00 FTE, and yours truly.  You can find links to each of these contributors’ websites within the guide.
