Why Your Employees Are Quitting



Presenters: Stacey Klimek, Jacqueline Vonk and Wendy Brown, PayScale

Original Program Date: July 2019 (available for on-demand viewing through October 2019)

Program length: 60 minutes

PayScale recently conducted new research to understand the factors that push employees to quit and the factors that pull them to join new organizations. It turns out that the No. 1 reason people leave their current organizations is to earn more money. Yet, money by itself is not enough of a draw for employees to join a new organization.

This webcast will share new research findings around employee attrition and address the four elements every organization needs to figure out to build and retain the right team, including compensation, meaningful work, recognition and community.

Attendees will walk away with insights and actions around:
  • How to use compensation to motivate performance
  • How to help employees feel more connected to the mission of your company
  • How to use recognition to boost engagement
  • How to cultivate a sense of community at work
