Sun Tzu Art of War In Talent Retention
Collective wisdom from Sun Tzu’s Art of War offers many valuable insights for the HR and OD Leaders today. Talent War and Talent Retention is fierce, and many HR leaders are challenged today. With attrition going up to 30-50 % today in some industries, this need to be addressed without delay and is the top priorities of many HR/OD leaders today.
Competition for talents and talent retention are always there. Both strive for winning position by defeating their competitors while defending themselves. Organizations must be well organized, have balanced employees’ welfare program and able to strike good work life harmony. Leadership style of organization has equally important influence on the shaping of success on Talent Retention.
Sun Tzu once said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Respect Talent to Retain Talent
Speaker 1 :
In Customer excellence service industry, personas help to define the broad clients’ demographics of who to target, their affinities, and how to curate a specific customer service journey map.
This is to serve the different group of customer personas, each with specific ROI and customer satisfaction outcomes.
In healthcare industry, a persona helps to depict the experiences, motivations, and goals of a group of patients, as well as the barriers they face. Personas offer what aggregate data cannot: first-hand insights into how the health care system not only fails to meet the needs of patients but may even contribute to subpar health outcomes.
Healthcare personas can be used as the foundation for healthcare journey maps to retain Talent.
Personas help us to discover, focus on, and showcase our audience’s motivations, challenges, concerns, and behaviours. Personas highlight the preference and choices of the specific group of employees so that HR can build processes, benefits, content, and policy that resonates with them.
This Talent retention and employee experience model could serve as another innovative model for other Service industry to consider.
How to Empower & Retain Your Generation Z Workforce!
With Generation Z as young as 20 to 25 years old, they are working in retail and frontline stores, stocking shelves, working the cash register, sales and even as knowledge workers. That makes it imperative to understand how Gen Z like to work, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and how you can enable them to be effective in the workplace.
Gen Z have a different outlook on how they should be trained, how to interact with management, and what to expect out of their jobs. But one of the biggest differences between Gen Z and other generations is how they utilize technology. Gen Z have spent their whole lives using smartphones and social networks as early as 10-year-old.
As company and retailers continue to hire more Gen Z employees, it’s critical to figure out how best to meet their specific needs. Real-time task management, simple and easy communication platform, upskilling and rewards recognition, regular feedback with colleagues ensures that Gen Z managers and associates can interact with each other at anytime, anywhere, and anyplace.
The Secret to Enhance Frontline Worker Productivity and Retention
To be successful, companies need a healthy and engaged workforce. Frontline workers are the first point of contact for your customer. Their knowledge and performance have a pivotal impact on your business and how it represents its values and mission. As such, there’s no question about the importance of keeping your frontline staff happy. Not only are happier employees more productive, but they also offer better service and improved customer loyalty.
However, often overlooked is the employee experience, well-being and career growth opportunities for employees.
A recent insight from Forbes magazine states that "31% of organisations that have the highest degree of digital connectivity and empowerment—involving more than 75 percent of their front-line workers—saw more than 20 percent growth over the past year."
This means technology investments in front-line workers result in real productivity and payback. Learn from real-life examples of how technology can boost the productivity and engagement of your frontline workers.
