Are Managers Helping or Hurting Your Retention Efforts?

Managers play a critical role in the employee retention process.

Manager-Employee disconnects are often cited as the # 1 reason why employees resign.

  • 50% to 75% of employees leave because of their manager or reasons their manager has influence over.” Business Leadership Today
  • “Almost 60% say they never received any training when they transitioned into their first leadership role.” Center for Creative Leadership 
  • “Nearly all bosses are ‘accidental’ with no formal training—and research shows it’s leading 1 in 3 workers to quit.” Orianna Royle

Managers have direct influence and control over many of the major retention drivers that affect employee decisions to stay or leave. 

Yet they don’t always know what is expected of them in efforts to improve retention, understand key retention drivers or what steps they can take to build trust, strengthen relationships and build the positive connections, emotions and feelings that create rewarding experiences, cultivate loyalty and increase retention. 


This workshop program is design to help educate and support managers so they have a positive impact on efforts to reduce employee turnover!
