Employee Recruitment and Retention

The effectiveness of your employee recruitment and retention efforts is key to both workplace culture and organizational performance. But how do you know you’re finding the right talent – and how do you make sure your best employees want to stay? Top Workplaces leaders have cracked the code when it comes to developing the optimal employee retention and recruitment strategies.

  • The top-tier Top Workplaces report a 42% higher retention rate than average organizations.
  • While almost half – 44% – of employees at average organizations say they have looked for a different job in the past month compared to just 14% at top-tier Top Workplaces.
