“What can a company do to retain and motivate its staff and what impact on the company’s health and safety performance might this have?”
Organisations are reliant on the employment and retention of quality staff. The motivation for this research lies in the belief that it addresses a real and significant corporate risk shared by many companies, therefore providing useful research that may benefit both employers and their employees.
The objective of this research is to identify:
• Benefits that can be provided by employers to motivate and retain its staff;
• External factors impacting recruitment and retention of staff;
• Positive impacts on health and safety performance to be gained by motivating and retaining the right talent.
A thorough literature review was conducted to identify what was already known on the subject of motivation and retention of talented employees and the impact on a company’s health and safety performance.
A questionnaire was developed and distributed with a total of 106 responses being received from employees in the UK, America, Australia and Singapore. Interviews were conducted with individuals responsible for the management of health and safety, corporate risk and human resources.
