Organizations struggle to retain staff

According to a new report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), there has been a significant rise in the number of organisations struggling to retain their staff over the past year and recruitment difficulties persist.

The CIPD’s annual Recruitment, Retention and Turnover Survey finds that almost eight in ten organisations struggled to hang on to their staff in 2006, compared to nearly seven in ten in 2005.

While the large majority of organisations (89 per cent) providing additional training to internal staff so that they can fill vacancies say that it has a positive impact, only 29 per cent of employers currently use this initiative.

For employees, it's time to strike while the iron is hot!
