Retaining good employees has always been a priority for construction companies but in today’s market, retention is critical. Kimmel & Associates has a unique perspective of employee retention because both companies and candidates must speak openly and honestly to us so that we can assist in career and company growth.

Throughout this process, we learn how companies retain key employees and what the top candidates are looking for within an organization. Based on extensive surveys, we will provide the top reasons why employees leave a company and how your company can retain employees giving specific examples from construction professionals.
