Retaining Your Most Valuable Employees
As the Great Resignation rages, retention strategies are likely to remain at the forefront of human resource and overall societal discussions. Breaking down mental and organizational barriers about how we conceptualize what work means is the first step in retaining and recruiting more A-players. The most skilled workers have the most options about how and where to work, and employers must adapt in response to this changing norm.
As an organization, Ellevate Network recognizes that those changes can be difficult to contend with. Through this white paper, we will illustrate some of the factors that drive the Great Resignation, as well as options employers can consider to recruit and retain top talent. We will share lessons learned as a certified B Corporation, a mission-driven organization that is changing the culture of business from the inside out - and that has continued to scale through the pandemic.
The foundation of our ability to scale Ellevate Network has been, and continues to be, our team. With a lean, but growing team, we thrive with leadership and middle-management teams with lower than average attrition rates. It’s a key factor in the overall Ellevate team’s high level of understanding and active participation in the company’s quarterly and annual goals.
Ellevate has further embraced aspects of its pre-COVID work culture to remain competitive in a rapidly changing marketplace for employers and employees. As COVID becomes accepted as manageable and many employees search for positions that better suit their lifestyles, Ellevate remains well-positioned with its focus on employee autonomy, a positive work environment that values self-starters, and authenticity.
