Whilst this can be an opportunity to capture key talent in the marketplace it is also a challenge for employers who want to retain their existing workforce. Retention starts at day 1 of the onboarding process (if not before), so how can you maximise your recruitment investment, reduce the impact of staff turnover and benefit from the existing talent that ultimately owns your customer experience CX?
