INTRODUCTIONOF THE PROJECT

INTRODUCTION TO “RETENTION”
“High performers are like frogs in a wheelbarrow-They can jump out at any time”-Mc Kinsey & Company Study.
“Genius begins and labor finishes” is an old saying that would be profoundly significant if interpreted in the context of corporate and large employers. Concepts, visions and decisionsdo take shape within the four walls of corporate boardrooms. However, it is only theemployees that implement and give tangibility to the corporate’s mission. In other words if itis the highest rung in the corporate hierarchy that has ideas, it is the employees’ rung thathas the chisel to bring the vision to life.In the best of worlds, employees would love their jobs. Like their co-workers, work hard for their employers; get paid well for their work, ample chances of advancement and flexibleschedules so they could attend to personal or family needs when necessary. And never leave.But then there’s the real world. And in the real world, employees, do, leave, either  because they want more money, hate the working conditions, hate their co-workers, want achange, or because their spouse gets a dream job in another state. Unlike inanimate productsand systems that subject themselves to fine tuning without any reaction, employees wouldnot subject themselves to any measure taken without reaction and analysis. Hence managinghuman resources, particularly retaining them, is an art that calls for special skills andstrategies.

The picture states the latest statement that corporate believes in “Love them or lose them”The reason may be personal or professional. These reasons should be understood by theemployer and should be taken care of. The organizations are becoming aware of thesereasons and adopting many strategies for employee retention.Employees today are different. They are not the ones who don’t have good opportunities inhand. As soon as they feel dissatisfied with the current employer or the job, they switch over to the next job. It is the responsibility of the employer to retain their best employees. If theydon’t, they would be left with no good employees. A good employer should know how toattract and retain its employees.Retention involves
