Retain faculty and staff while building lasting relationships
For the academic process to succeed, it’s essential to build a stable environment where students can rely on their faculty and staff members to be mentors and leaders. The reasons for turnover at colleges and universities can be endless with research opportunities elsewhere, insufficient funding, heavy work loads, lack of growth opportunities and low pay being just a few of the obstacles that hiring managers must overcome when filling positions within academia.
Excessive turnover in higher education has serious repercussions. Not only does it impact the credibility of your institution among potential faculty, it can also hamper student body satisfaction.
HSD Metrics helps major academic institutions retain their best employees and answer their biggest HR issues through exit surveys for colleges and universities. We leverage our decades of experience to do more than just give you the tools to maintain the status quo – we enable you to analyze trends, efficiently monitor responses and access data 24/7 to actively boost your college’s staff retention rate.
