2014 will be the year Retention returns to HR.
Retention almost died during the great recession. For almost 10 years HR pros were able to roam the halls of their organization and almost never had to worry about the issue of retention. There weren’t many jobs. Most people in times of hardship, hunker down and don’t move. It was like a perfect retention storm! There are HR Pros who graduated out of HR programs, started their careers in the past 5 years, that have never known a time when retaining your employees was the number one priority!
