Retention guide refresh

Improving Staff Retention cover

We have updated our retention guide to include the latest learning and good practice examples from our 2018/19 work.

Throughout this work, NHS Employers has engaged with NHS organisations to understand retention challenges and provide tools and resources to help shape and implement effective workforce retention plans.

Originally published in 2017, the guide covers the key topics affecting retention, including:

  • understanding data
  • supporting new starters
  • flexible working
  • building line manager capability and capacity
  • staff engagement
  • development and career planning.

Download the guide in full.
