During my conversation with departing employees, I often contemplate reasons for their separation. Surprisingly, it’s not every time that an employee leaves because of dissatisfaction over salary, work or supervisor. Better engagement and meaningful assignment are often the reasons employees give for leaving. Employees today are more experimental than before; they are open to take any move that can enhance their career. Holding them is a challenge. For a strong retention and engagement strategy, it is important to record employee behavior patterns that inspire turnover.
