Innovative retention strategy involving organizational leadership

Organizational Leadership Scenario
Y‌‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍ou have worked for Organization XYZ as the Human Resource Director since its inception 10 years ago. Over the last year, the organization’s sales department has experienced very high turnover. It was discovered that many of the sales associates started working for the organization’s competitor due to better benefits. The CEO recently asked you to develop and implement an innovative retention strategy.

This will be the first time that the organization has updated their HR practices. Your HR Department has not experienced high turnover and is comprised of senior employees (many who have been there since the organization was founded). Your HR team has expressed their discomfort with changing the current processes. They are afraid that the changes will impact a new culture within the HR Department. This fear of the unknown has your staff reluctant to embrace change.

For this assignment you will write a four page paper that covers the following:

Firstly, present detail information about an innovative retention strategy that the organization should implement that will be effective and employees will see as motivational.

Secondly, what type of leadership approach will you use to gain a buy-in within ‌‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍your department? Explain your rationale.

Thirdly, mention the potential risks that you think will come with your strategy and effective methods to prevent them. Be clear and specific.
