How to relook at retention processes

Someone mailed


We are planning to initate a talent retention programme also frame policy guidelines for employee recognition


Can I get soem inputs on the saem please


Ideally a talent retention program would include both structures and processes to reward retention. However my opinion is that do not get stuck with retention with the sake of retention.


Do an in-depth analysis of reasons and then either frame a policy/re-look at processes. Ideally you should be able to get some fair data on reasons by  doing some focus group discussions and interview with current and ex-employees. You should also tie-in with the business benefits of retention and link that to results. This would enable you to have a better buy in from leadership.
