Jeff’s Employee Retention Blog, Tips and Advice

Enough is Enough

When this employee recruitment expert talks to potential candidates about jobs I’m looking to fill for client organizations, one of the questions I automatically ask is, “Why would you think about leaving your current organization?”    The responses I get are all...

Poaching the Competitor’s Employees

As this employee recruitment expert pulled into the parking a large blue motor coach that was parked in the back of the lot caught my eye.  On the side of the motorcoach was printed the Lowes logo.  I walked up to the motorcoach to check it out.  What I saw on the...

Don’t Serve the Customer

You Don’t Track Employee Turnover?

We tend to use data for many of our decisions and that is a good thing in many ways.  The first step of course is to actually track it.   It just amazes this employee retention trainer that some organizations that reach out to me to conduct workouts for their...
