RETENTION

Whilst many organisations focus their efforts on attracting and recruiting diverse talent, it is crucial that work is being done to effectively retain all diverse employees. Failing to retain employees is costly. Moreover, it can impact directly on recruitment and attraction, as it means there is a lack of visible role models.
 

Retention of diverse groups is very much tied to both culture and progression; if someone doesn’t see opportunities to advance and they feel like they don’t belong, they are more likely to look elsewhere. It is important for organisations in the offshore wind sector to ensure everyone feels comfortable and included and provide equal opportunities for talent to progress [see Progression] or there is risk that talent will leave the sector as well as their organisation
