In today’s highly competitive labour market, there is extensive evidence that organisations are facing retention challenges. The external and internal drivers and restraints for employee retention are many. An improved economy and high demand for skilled professionals increases job prospects, making employee retention one of the top challenges that organisations face today.The Association for Talent Development (US) released a study that states that only 42% of employees say their employer does a good job of retaining talent and 87% of employers say that improving retention is a critical priority for their organisations.
This conference comes at a time where it is It is more important than ever for HR professionals to re-examine their recruitment, onboarding, and retention strategies. Attend this one-day seminar on Employee Retention Strategies on 15 November 2017 in Johannesburg to:

Research by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) have shown that a company's On-Boarding process has the second highest impact on business after recruitment. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that companies with a highly engaging On-Boarding process retain 91% of their first-year employees. Furthermore, new hires that went through a well- structured On- Boarding programme, are 69% more likely to remain at the company for up to 3 years!Thus, the following question need to be asked: if organisations are going through all the trouble and expense of recruiting talent for their organisation, why are they not investing in an On-Boarding process for new employees and creating an experience that makes them want to stay?
Knowledge Resources brings you this highly interactive workshop on 14th November 2017 in Johannesburg - designed to improve your recruitment, on-boarding, organisational change & culture, employee engagement and talent retention. This workshop takes place just before the Employee Retention Seminar taking place on the 15th November 2017 in Johannesburg.

Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
