There are many great examples of organisations already implementing comprehensive strategies to support retention of staff. Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust actively engages with its front line staff to develop strategies to support careers and other areas critical to retention.
It features HR staff, ward managers and nurses talking about some of these strategies:
- have the conversation with staff to understand the issues, why people leave
- develop and promote career opportunities
- develop a newly qualified staff community
- weather watch, enabling staff engagement and feedback
