It’s straightforward stuff: retaining your talented employees is necessary for your organization to grow and thrive. What’s less straightforward is where to start with accomplishing that task. What kind of turnover is healthy turnover, and what can you do about the preventable turnover? What kind of data tracking should you be doing, and how do you use those numbers to make improvements? What’s an easy way to go about stay and exit interviews to ensure you’re getting honest, raw feedback?

Jeff Kortes, employee retention speaker and author, joins Brandon Laws in a discussion of all things employee retention. Listen in to hear about practical tips and tools to introduce into your workplace practices as well as the meaning of Jeff’s “C.R.A.P.” leadership system and what it could do for your company and people.

About the Guest:

Jeff Kortes didn’t become an employee retention speaker, author and expert by accident. His early career spanned 25 years as a human resources professional, trainer, and consultant. He has held leadership roles in companies such as ConAgra, Midas International, SPX, and Regal Ware, Inc. 

Jeff's no-nonsense approach is reflected in his C.R.A.P. Leadership System, which instills positive supervisory and managerial behavior while driving results in the organization. Jeff also works as a “headhunter,” finding candidates to fill organizations’ talent needs and constantly learning about what drives candidates to choose one employer over another.

Jeff speaks and conducts workshops nationwide as an employee retention trainer. He draws on his experiences as a human resources professional, father, coach, martial artist and U.S. Army veteran to provide thought-provoking programs that yield results.
