Improving staff retention: a guide for employers

Improving Staff Retention cover

We have recently updated our employer guide for improving staff retention to reflect the recent work we’ve been doing in 2018/19.

During this time, we have been engaging with a large number of NHS organisations to help understand their retention challenges and equip them with tools and resources to shape and implement effective workforce retention plans.

Within the guide we have highlighted several good practice case studies that illustrate the breadth of great work already taking place across the NHS, as well as resources to help you think about improving turnover and managing staff effectively.

The guide also contains key information on several key areas of retention such as:

  • using data to understand your workforce
  • supporting new starters
  • flexible working
  • career development and planning
  • building line manager capability and capacity
  • good practice examples
  • evaluating your retention initiatives.
