Retention of your critical talent is one of the top talent management concern in today's global economy. The true ROI of top talent isn't realized if that talent leaves. Add the significant cost of replacing talent to the loss of skills and institutional knowledge when top performers leave, and the importance of retention becomes even more manifest. These factors, coupled with the rapidly changing demographics of today's workforce as the Baby Boomer generation begins to leave in significant numbers and the Millennial generation makes its presence increasingly felt, demand that savvy leaders understand the dynamics of retaining talent and know how to manage talent with retention as a goal.

In October 2014, an article entitled, “Analytics Leaders Discuss New Trends,” recapped the discussions of a Talent Analytics Leadership Roundtable hosted by Northwestern University. Identified in these trends was the need to overhaul employee engagement measurement. Many organizations have moved from an annual measurement in favour of a continual one. I agree with that change because the engagement score is incredibly sensitive to when people answer the survey relative to such factors as recent business events and even the weather.
