What is employee engagement and retention?

Employee engagement refers to the emotional connection a person has with their place of work. Usually, when a person has a strong connection with their organisation they’re unlikely to look for a role elsewhere.

Employee retention on the other hand, describes the ability an organisation has to hold onto its employees. Because engaged employees are less likely to resign, most retention strategies focus on how they can boost employee engagement.

So, to improve employee retention, it’s important your company’s policies include measures that focus on both engagement and retention.
