In response to employer feedback, NHS Employers is funding and delivering a unique, tailored programme to support 92 NHS organisations to reduce staff turnover and improve staff retention.
Initially, the workforce retention team 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 92 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 workforce retention programme has been divided into three module workshops in which programme participants will look at innovative ways to influence and implement change and improvement within their organisations, and focuses on how to make change, and engage with others across their organisation to affect positive change around retention.
Starting at the end of October 2016, the programme runs until July 2017. Please keep an eye on our website for new resources as the programme progresses.
