According to low estimates, the turnover of a single $8 per hour employee will cost your company close to $4,000 when you factor in recruiting, interviewing, retraining, and loss of productivity that comes from the loss. Retention is key, especially with your performance rock stars!
Leadership training is 3 times more effective at teaching knowledge than it is in changing behavior. When people just sit and listen to a teacher during employee training programs, they retain only 20% of what they hear.
Participants involved in active learning (doing a real job, a simulation, a training game, etc.) retain 90% of the information through the power of play.
