Workforce retention programme

tick boxes

In response to employer feedback, NHS Employers is funding and delivering a unique, tailored programme to support NHS organisations to reduce staff turnover and improve staff retention.

The programme will see workforce leads from 100 NHS organisations attend three facilitated workshops, in which they’ll be given the tools and skills to create a sustainable retention plan.

Read the blog from Danny Mortimer, chief executive at NHS Employers, which explores the background to the programme and why it's so important to retain our workforce. 

The programme will:

  • provide time, space and expertise to help participants work through local data to understand the reasons why people are leaving
  • create and implement a tailored retention plan
  • provide participants with the skills to engage others to support their trust's retention plan.
The workforce retention team initially planned to support three cohorts and offer 45 places on the programme, but the response to the programme has been so high that places for 100 organisations are being provided across six cohorts. Groups will meet in London, Leeds and Birmingham, and participants will include acute, community, mental health, and ambulance service trusts from a wide geographical spread.

The programme will begin at the end of October and will run for 12 months. Please keep an eye on our website for updates as the programme progresses.
