“I highly value my relationship with LSA Global. We worked closely together to design a retaining top talent for managers solution for our Client Partner Teams on both coasts. LSA designed a high quality customized solution for our specific business and unique culture to ensure that we identify and retain our most strategic and valuable talent.”
Laurie Torres | Chief People Officer | WCG

Description:
A recent Human Resource Executive study found that 72% of HR leaders were most worried about losing their top talent.  According to the Bureau of National affairs, US businesses lose $11 billion annually as a result of employee turnover.  The good news is that factors within the control of the manager are the most frequently cited reasons for employee attrition.

The Retaining Top Talent for Managers training program reduces costly turnover in the ranks of top-performing employees — those most critical to your business success — by helping managers take ownership of their role in the employee retention process.

The Retaining Top Talent Training Program and intervention has three major components:

  1. Retention Assessment Profile
    An on-line survey that measures managers’ effectiveness in specific behaviors proven to impact employee retention. Each participating manager completes a self-assessment and has their direct reports provide confidential feedback.

    Data from these surveys is used to generate individual retention profile reports provided to participants during the Retaining Top Talent workshop.

  2. Retaining Top Talent for Managers Training Workshop
    Managers explore the multiple factors that increase employee retention and motivation, identify those that are within their control, and receive feedback from their direct reports on these management practices.

    Managers learn and share related strategies and best practices, determine what actions to take to strengthen their skills, and prepare for ongoing retention-focused discussions with their employees.

  3. Retention Certification
    We also offer a Train-The-Trainer program to help you more fully integrate the Retaining Top Talent for Managers program into your organization. It includes a day of train-the-trainer and a consultant and manager toolkit to run and implement the methodology.

Additional reinforcement components can be deployed to reinforce workshop lessons and continue the momentum of your intervention:

For Managers

  • Retention Assessment Profile reassessment 6 and 12 months after the workshop
  • On-line Retention Action Planners to help focus both the manager and their direct reports on the most critical retention factors

For Direct Reports

Participant materials can be customized to include organization-specific information, tools, forms, language, and processes such as:

  • dealing with the work attitudes of younger workers
  • tips for retaining remote employees
  • identifying employee motivators
  • retaining diverse workers
  • targeted feedback on your managers’ retention practices

Target Audience
Managers and supervisors of top talent.

I appreciate that each management development program is preceded by a thorough training needs assessment of the participants that informs a design to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group.

The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course.

Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually.
