Abstract

Retention of diverse staff is an often stated goal but frequently takes a back seat to recruitment efforts. One reason for this is a lack of understanding of the factors that influence employees to stay in an organization. Methods to determine why employees leave or stay are discussed as well as the retention tools that work best to retain diverse employees. These tools include mentoring, networking, career and learning opportunities, a balance between work and home life, a welcoming climate, and support for research.
