Retain great people

Retaining great people is a challenge for us all. Check out some useful tools and ideas below

The art of retention is closely aligned to organisational culture, leadership behaviours, pay and benefits and career progression.

We have included client delivery examples and tools in all areas of retention from onboarding to learning from exit interviews. We also offer free access to a job search tool should you need to create outplacement provision in the future.

We also offer free fun resources; an alternative look at the first 28 days at work (really good for early career entrants) which can be found in the downloads alongside a guide for the mid careers amongst us that complements our platform

The Organisation

A UK based manufacturer employing people across a number of sites. This organisation had high volume recruitment needs alongside a large turnover of staff in the first 12 months of employment. The client felt that improving the onboarding process would have a positive effect on new starters entering the organisation.

The Challenge

To create a simple, fun and informative onboarding process that could easily be adapted for each new starter. This required the onboarding documentation to be simple and produced in a format that everyone knew how to use. The process needed to include pre-employment onboarding up to first 90 days.

The Outcome

The project delivered:

  • A pre-employment welcome at point of contract signing 
  • A fun welcome guide sent to the new starter prior to employment
  • HR team training on onboarding and uses of the documents. This included a train-the-trainer session for future use
  • Reduction in 12-month attrition by increasing the focus on getting the circumstances and environment ready for success.



The Organisation

A manufacturing company employing around 2,000 people who wanted to understand the reasons people were leaving the company. This business employed people across various sites in the UK and attrition was fairly consistent amongst professional and hourly paid roles.

The Challenges

To understand why people were leaving the organisation it was useful that we were independent as we did not have preconceived ideas or perceptions why this was. It is important to start with data and we investigated this as part of the scoping of the project to get precise facts as well as opinion.

The Outcome

This project gave the organisation:

  • A data breakdown of attrition by level, site, job role and length of service as well as more company specific data points requested by the stakeholders.
  • Benchmarking against industry norms by location and job role.
  • Trend analysis via existing exit interviews data and follow-up calls with ex employees.
  • Analysis against established EVP offerings. This offered a simple traffic light system with suggested actions to improve.
  • Trend analysis off the feedback gained on leadership and organisation culture with suggested actions to improve.
