"A war rages in today's workplace, pitting company against company in the fight to find and keep good employees. The losses are high, and battle-weary managers are desperate for talented reinforcements. They've learned that bonuses, stock options, and other financial rewards aren't enough. To win this ""war for talent,"" they need more.

Help has arrived in the form of Keeping the People Who Keep You in Business. This compelling new book gives readers a battle-plan for victory, offering 24 strategies for retaining valuable people. The strategies are grouped in four basic ""keys""

1) Be a company people want to work for

2) Select the right person in the first place

3) Manage the joining-up process

4) Coach to maintain commitment.

These practices will help readers: Make their organization an ""employer of choice"" * Clearly define the talent needed * Make new employees feel welcomed, valued, prepared, and challenged * Facilitate employees' career growth and advancement, and more.

Keeping the People Who Keep You in Business is also loaded with specific examples, how-to guidelines, models, and planning aids--proven tools from an expert who knows that money alone won't keep the employees you can't afford to lose."

Review:

Today's worker shortage is painful enough, but compounded by other employment realities--resignations on short notice, sudden disappearances by new hires, through-the-roof recruitment costs, associated customer and staff disruptions--it's enough to make anyone handling personnel feel as if they're in a war. That's exactly the premise advanced by employee-retention specialist Leigh Branham, whose Keeping the People Who Keep You in Business offers a very workable plan for victory in a workforce battle with no immediate end in sight. It details 24 Retention Practices that Branham developed and organized around the principles of attracting ("be a company that people want to work for"), selecting ("select the right people in the first place"), integrating ("get them off to a great start") and coaching ("coach and reward to sustain commitment"). Each, from "Adopt a 'Give-and-Get-Back' Philosophy" to "Have More Fun," recommends specific programs to help achieve its stated goal, and offers real-life examples of these activities in action at both megacorporations like Charles Schwab and Mirage Resorts and smaller firms including a Charlotte, North Carolina, print shop and a San Francisco architectural firm. "Reducing turnover takes commitment," as Branham says, and this book includes a useful collection of techniques and tools that actually could make it happen. --Howard Rothman

From the Publisher:

Through inspiring examples and practical suggestions, Keeping the People Who Keep You in Business deftly illustrates that it takes more than a fat paycheck to keep valuable employees: Successful retention also involves doing many small things that serve to enhance performance, motivation, and employee engagement. Filled with guidelines, models, and planning aids, this book is a must for managers searching for ways to retain the people who are priceless to their organization's success.
