The Impact of Emotional Bonds Across the Employee Life-cycle  

Increasing Retention and Performance of Talent

Connecting with employees is critical to the success of the leader and their organisation. In today’s challenging market, having employees who feel connected and engaged is vital when striving to achieve potential and maximise performance. Connection is also a key ingredient towards the retention of talent.

In this session we will discuss the social brain and why emotional bonds matter. We will look at how to build a culture of excellence and consider the 5 stages of the employee life-cycle; 

  • Pre-Employment

  • Attachment

  • Connection

  • Detachment 

  • Post-Employment

The forum provides an opportunity to explore;

  • How does “Attachment” impact retention and performance of new talent

  • How “Connection” impacts inclusivity, belonging, trust and sustainable performance, and why is it a key talent risk indicator

  • Why is “Detachment” important to understand and measure as part of your talent exit process
