Staying Power: Why Your Employees Leave & How to Keep Them Longer

This insightful new book is designed to help executives, leaders, and managers discover exactly how our workforce has changed in the past 10 years, why employers are struggling to keep talent today, and how to gain better staffing stability moving forward. While some of today’s workforce is made up of deep-rooted, dependable staff, a larger portion of positions are transitioning to revolving doors of turnover. This impacts levels of customer service, productivity, and profitability. While facing the new realities of today’s workforce and the evolution of employee expectations over the past decade, organizations must understand how to effectively hire and manage shorter-term workers who have a different view of the workplace than previous generations of employees, if companies intend to remain sustainable.

A necessary shift in big-picture thinking and leadership styles will be explained, as well as tactical employee retention strategies. Readers will discover examples of ways to dedicate more staffing resources to make retention a higher priority and stronger component of the organizational culture, how to diagnose the real reasons staff at various levels leave (beyond pay), common mistakes managers should avoid that unintentionally cause unnecessary employee turnover, and best practices that have proven to keep new hires longer, such as offering innovative opportunities for advancement, providing access to continued training and development, revamping compensation packages, and improving the onboarding experience for new staff.

Readers will gain a greater understanding of who they are hiring and the mindset of today’s new workforce, as well as tangible operational tools for immediately improving employee retention within their companies. This new perspective and management approach, when made a priority throughout the organization, leads to greater customer satisfaction and employee engagement.


Keynotes, Workshops & Webinars

The Staying Power message of improving employee retention can be shared through a keynote presentation, a half-day or full-day workshop, virtually for geographically-dispersed groups, or a bundle of these options for maximum results.

While some of today’s workforce is made up of deep-rooted, dependable staff, a larger number of positions are now a revolving door of turnover. Learn how to slow this revolving door and maximize the time you have with employees.

  • Discover current employee turnover trends and future staffing projections
  • Uncover the real reasons employees leave most organizations and ways to encourage them to stay
  • Learn strategies for preparing your organization to manage shorter-term workers

As professional speakers and dynamic facilitators, all of Cara & Leah’s presentations are engaging, interactive and actionable – combining memorable storytelling and highly-visual slides with facts that support their findings. While your presenter will share unique big-picture perspectives to shift the traditional mindset of your program participants, she will also offer immediately-actionable, tangible takeaways, also giving attendees access to additional free resources and templates created for our retention clients.

And we’d love to schedule a book-signing event while we are with your group to offer your attendees an additional takeaway!
