Stressful Work and Unwanted Turnover: Why Good People Leave and How to Prevent It
Unwanted turnover of the key employees is one of the greatest financial and operational losses in organizational life. Dr. Marcus Fila presents on how to keep good people from leaving your organization.
This session is geared towards CEOs and upper-level executives, strategic human resources professionals, influential employees. The Learning Center offers free educational opportunities for Elkhart County nonprofits and those serving Elkhart County.
Every incident of unwanted turnover costs the organization, on average, between 65% and 200% of that individual’s salary to replace them with an equally or more effective person. There are many reasons why good people leave organizations. A small number of these are outside of the control of organizational leaders. However, there is much that leaders can do to reduce incidents of unwanted turnover. This workshop is designed to help you consider the unnecessary stressors and other myriad reasons why good people leave – many of which are commonly overlooked; and to keep your valued employees engaged, committed, and dedicated.
