Retention Strategies

Hosted by the Electrical Contractors Trust of Solano/Napa Counties

Target Audience:  Individuals at all levels in electrical contracting firms

Course Description:  The number one reason employees quit their job is because of poor relationships with their direct supervisors. Management should approach every potential employee as a career hire, not a short-term freelancer. Ultimately a new-hire is someone you want to continue to promote from within. Have a retention structure in place that makes a commitment to employee morale, employee development and employee elevation. In order to motivate your team, develop standards and accountability, set up company loyalty ambassadors as mentors for new hires, implement a performance appraisal system for best practices and determine ROI for each employee. In addition, foster long-term goals, create work and family balance noting that it is important to keeping work at a premium level. Following the course, participants will be able to:

  • develop key processes and procedures for employee retention;
  • create the proper structure;
  • understand the planning process;
  • set up a dialogue between manager and employee;
  • create an environment for employees to develop and grow with the company;
  • interview skills – how to pick the right people every time; and
  • what are the six key job responsibilities for each position.
