How to Keep YoPros Engaged in the Workforce

Have you ever wondered why young professionals keep job hopping? Their eagerness to enter the workplace significantly diminishes after that first year, but where does this come from? Our founder, Kamber Parker, answers these questions in the regional Business Journals across Greenville, Columbia, and Charleston last month. She argues that there needs to be a system put into place to sustain a strong young professional culture. When this happens, young professional retention improves, resulting in wider success for the businesses involved.

In her article, Kamber shares the reasons businesses are seeing low young professional retention and provides action steps that companies can take including creating a young professional-specific onboarding program, regular check-ins, and customized ongoing training for this demographic in the workforce.

Employers need to implement innovative, yet simple, ways for YoPro employees to find purpose in their roles, and it starts with companies. Through action steps listed in Kamber's article, we can keep young professionals engaged in the workforce and recreate the workplace today.

Check out Kamber’s full article here for an in-depth look into how we can do this successfully.
