IIM Indore Announces
an “Expert Talk”
On Saturday, 29th July 2017 (10 AM to 1 PM)
“HR Initiatives for Managing Attrition“
One of the ways in which attrition can be managed is by introducing continuous learning frameworks inside organizations. However, it is necessary to anchor learning frameworks within structures of mutual responsibility as well. The quality of leader-member exchange can also impact attrition in significant ways. It is necessary to think of initiatives that frame leader-member exchange within terms of mutual respect. While the extensive presence of authentic relationships in organizations can be helpful, it is necessary to balance authenticity with citizenship behaviours.
Emphasizing cultures of autonomy can also be helpful in managing attrition at different levels in the organization. Autonomy needs to be situated within emerging frameworks of accountability. Employees feel more engaged with their organizations if they find space for expressing a variety of emotions. Employees need to have voice and it is necessary to overcome cultures of censoring the suggestions of employees. An overall emotional climate of modesty can also significantly help in managing attrition.
