Rx for Retention™
Our Rx for Retention™ learning program is geared specifically for the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry to understand why employees leave the organization and what can be done to improve retention.
In our Rx for Retention™, participants will:
- Understand the business case for retaining top talent
- Learn the important trends for talent retention
- Learn the warning signs of retention risk
- Learn how to conduct “re-recruitment” and “making a save” conversations
- Be equipped with the tools necessary to have “re-recruitment” and “making a save conversations” with someone in their organization
Leaders who make it a habit to engage others empathetically are able to pinpoint the root cause of poor performance, lack of engagement, or those at risk for leaving the organization. It is not a “nice to have” skill but a management priority that focuses on building understanding around what someone actually thinks and feels about a task, person, situation, or event. This understanding informs how you coach and support them moving forward.
At WLH, we help leaders develop their Leadership Empathy skills through a live or virtual workshop. In our leadership empathy workshops we teach leaders to:
