We've done the research, we have the experience, and we know the biggest question you're all asking right now is ...
why do good people quit their jobs?
The problems may be different, but the root causes are the same across every field, industry, or profession.
Problem 1: new hires don't stay long
Have you considered that conflicts between employees from different generations - especially those in leadership positions - might be a root cause of this problem?
Problem 2: employees don't participate in the culture
It's possible you need to expand your understanding of inclusivity. You may have introverts or neurodivergent folks who feel excluded from team building or corporative activities.
Problem 3: you can't sell good candidates on the position
Have you looked at your policies to see if they are stopping people from saying 'yes'? What does your maternity/paternity leave look like? Are you flexible about a hybrid workplace?

client case study
We delivered a training for a mid-size marketing company at their annual retreat. Even prior to the pandemic, they had a hybrid workforce with both on-site and remote staff. This led to significant issues with team cohesion, communication, and ineffective leadership. We were hired to help address those issues, which we did through an activity-driven, pragmatic approach that taught them that the key to resilient employee engagement starts with inclusivity and understanding.
We have since heard from the company that our workshop helped them develop stronger communication skills and a more effective leadership structure, while also giving them a framework to better mitigate interpersonal conflicts. The training gave them the tools to ensure their hybrid workforce stayed engaged - limiting their turnover during the tumultuous last few years.
