Talent retention is a pressing issue in today’s workplaces. Employee turnover impacts organizational effectiveness, productivity, morale, and teamwork dynamics. Understanding the underlying reasons for turnover is crucial for creating a culture that values and retains talent.

Recent findings, such as those from the 2022 Myers-Briggs Report, highlight the significant time employees spend dealing with workplace conflicts—averaging 4.34 hours per week. Studies by Panaci et al. (2020) further establish a clear link between turnover intentions and these conflicts.

This proactive approach not only strengthens team bonds but also leads to noticeable improvements in retention rates.
