How to Retain Talent during The Great Resignation

Retain Top Performers | The Great Resignation Resource Center


The ‘Great Resignation has turned the job market on its head. Now more than ever, employees have the power of choice, and employers need to think outside the box in order to remain competitive.

It’s no secret that employee turnover is higher than ever. Organizations are pursuing unique solutions to hold on to top talent, from improving employee benefits to increasing compensation. However, too few are focusing on onboarding — a process that can help employers significantly improve retention when done right.

As the saying goes, life is growth. This is as true in the workplace as it is anywhere else. Employees today are seeking ways to sharpen their skills and connect with other members of their workforce, and employers must facilitate those opportunities or risk losing top talent.

While health and leave benefits were prioritized over retirement benefits throughout 2020 and 2021, this year has seen employee preferences turning back to what they were pre-pandemic.
In the past, if you provided health insurance and retirement options, your benefits were considered competitive. Now, the pressure is on employers to supply more diverse options.
There are more than 76 million hourly workers in the United States, many of whom have historically been denied access to strong employee benefits. However, today’s hourly employees are demanding more from their employers, and organizations must adapt to meet their needs or risk losing top talent.

One solution involves enhancing your executive benefits program. In this episode of BIZTips, we spoke with Anne Long, President, CBIZ Life Insurance Solutions, about the importance of executive benefits and the must-have executive perks employers should be offering in 2023.
