Combat the skills shortage with a framework for staff retention that has been developed through the reverse-engineering of 5000 exit interviews.

Building, leading and retaining a top performing team is no easy feat, especially in the highly competitive engineering industry. Employers across all disciplines today are faced with a major skills shortage, a hinderance which has been further compounded by the recent border closures.

With rivals knocking on your employees' doors and recent data indicating that a high percentage of Australian employees are looking for new work, implementing strategies in your workplace to attract and retain talent has never been more critical to succeeding.

In this session we will deliver 9 factors which will help keep your best people from walking out the door. These 9 factors, called the 9 ‘Currencies of Choice®’ are heavily research-based, proven to be effective.

Kim Seeling Smith reverse engineered over 5,000 exit interviews to develop this model and consistently pressure tests this against the latest international research.
