Retention is the extent to which an employer keeps their people working within their organisation.
When someone is recruited to a role, they should feel welcomed, engaged and supported. Primary Care Careers (PCC) can work with you to understand the health of your workplace and to develop a successful retention strategy.

It is important to get things right from the very start: an engaging and attractive job advertisement, with competitive pay and benefits, followed by a straightforward application process, with good communication throughout.  This will ensure that a candidate’s first experience of you, as an employer, is a positive one and that they enter into the role in the best possible mindset.

Next, the welcome and induction have a significant impact on a person’s integration, affecting their levels of job satisfaction, productivity and potential. 

The working environment is a further consideration. More than just the facilities and working conditions on offer, you need to reflect on:

  • the culture and behaviour within the practice or primary care network (PCN)
  • the initiatives and opportunities on offer
  • your ability to be flexible where possible
  • your willingness to listen, and respond, to feedback
