Excessive turnover in an organization is a prime indicator that something is not right in the employee environment. We will look at the differences between retention and turnover, why employees stay, reasons why they leave, and what can be done to save them. We will also examine some external factors that will make employee retention and turnover reduction highest priorities for human resource professionals. Basically, employee retention is measured by an employee's longevity with a company, and is the desired outcome of a company hiring workers it wants and needs. Many organizations find it more productive and profitable to redirect resources formerly allocated to recruiting, hiring, orienting, and training of new employees and use them instead toward employee retention programs.

Beck’s Hybrids Recruitment and Selection Process Recruitment and selection impacts the success of every organization. Organizations with effective recruiting and selection result in positive outcomes that affects the products and services, and the perception of the organization. Having the right people for the job will increase profits and decrease costly turnovers. Even though organizations are operating in uncertain times, focusing on staying committed, and making certain they have the best talent will ensure future success. The bottom line of the organization will be impacted by setting a clear direction that employees can get behind, and making sure the right people are hired for the right job.
So it’s possible they need to be addressed after the investors. It sort of goes by that saying “the sweaky wheel gets the oil” what could do the most damage needs to be repaired, fixed or in this instance addressed first. The employees needs the company, they are more likely to be co-operative. However, what a thing to do to your hardest workers who have been trying to benefit the company all along. So the most useful strategy I can think of is keep the investors pacified and investing money, keep the employees happy so they will continue to do a great job.
Training for Customer Loyalty “Training is the systematic acquisition of skills, rules, concepts, or attitudes that result in improved performance” (Goldstein & Ford, 2002). Pal’s Sudden Service has focused their hiring practices on hiring the right people first, providing the best training possible and reinforcing training everyday. The investment in training has much more to do with the company other than low errors, reduced customer wait times, which lead to high customer satisfaction. The focus on training reduces employee turnover. The costs of hiring and training new employees greatly reduces customer loyalty, both significantly will impact profit.

When being a leader it is very important that you create an atmosphere where team building is easily chosen. I believe great bosses know how important it is to build trust in any organization. And in order to have good team building trust is key. They basically go hand in hand. Leaders who inspire trust collect better output, morale, retention, innovation, loyalty, and revenue, while mistrust raises doubt, frustration, low productivity, lost sales, and turnover.
Six Sigma focuses on improving current business processes and performance while Lean Manufacturing focuses on the improvement of the processes of an organization by using highly skilled employees to increase speed and quality. Combining the two methodologies creates an organization that focuses on quality, efficiency and speed to lower operational costs and increase profits. By following the Lean Six Sigma methodology, many companies have attempted to create a lean, waste-free environment ultimately at the expense of the employee and occasionally at the expense of the organization. Variability and Failing the Lean Test Creating a process is not always the answer to every organization. Organizations attempting to reduce waste may find themselves stuck trying to understand precisely where vital financial cuts need to take place.
Employee Morale After Downsizing Downsizing has become a significant idea in today's economy and maintaining the trust of employees when something like this takes place has also become very serious business (Brockner, Konovsky, Cooper-Schneider, Folger, Martin, & Bies, 1994). The question is not whether a company should downsize their employees but how to do the downsizing properly so that as few employees as possible are injured (Brockner, Konovsky, Cooper-Schneider, Folger, Martin, & Bies, 1994). There are several ways that companies can downsize that will help retain much of the loyalty of the workers that remain (Brockner, Konovsky, Cooper-Schneider, Folger, Martin, & Bies, 1994). Companies who downsize through attrition and buyouts, those companies that work to help downsized employees find new jobs, and companies that are willing to provide outplacement services to those individuals often end up in positions that are much better than companies that simply fire workers due to downsizing (Brockner, Konovsky, Cooper-Schneider, Folger, Martin, & Bies, 1994). These companies who show that they care about the workers that they have to remove through downsizing have a much greater chance of retaining a lot of the loyalty originally given to them by the workers that survived the downsizing (Brockner, Konovsky, Cooper-Schneider, Folger, Martin, & Bies, 1994).
The ultimate strategy to reduce the costs of turnover and high recruitment is to manage for retention. A "wait and see" approach will not work. Developing a proactive strategy to keeping key employees is essential.

Employers that make a significant percentage of the compensation package variable will benefit both the organization and the employee by encouraging high-caliber performance.
