Magnet Culture’s no non-sense approach to employee retention is both refreshing and realistic. Their strategies identify some very simple, realistic and cost-effective approaches that an employer can execute today to attract and retain their talent.

The message Magnet Culture shared is making me drastically better at my job.

Michael R. Hinton

The Magnet Culture message has led to better communication, increased focus on the things that really matter, and more tolerance for the things that don’t.

The interactive and enlightening presentation was tailored perfectly to our team. We each walked away with a broader understanding of workforce retention challenges and specific action items we can tackle to improve our organization.

“The Magnet Culture workshop was really eye-opening for us because we could say, ‘Ok. Over the past three years, 54% of our new people don’t even make it to six months.’ We’re now tracking that quarterly, and in this last quarter, we’ve seen a 10% improvement on our new hires staying past that 6-month mark.”

Leadership Development Case Study

Pacific Retirement Community (PRS) is a national senior living organization
providing exceptional care to residents in 12 life plan communities across six states.

“It’s not what we’re hearing, it’s what we’re seeing. It’s like we have all new managers walking down the hall.”

As PRS continued expanding their locations over the past decade, they identified a gap between where their managers’ skills were versus where they needed to be. While great, talented people were in these positions, not everyone had been given the tools they needed to be successful in their leadership roles and some teams were not collaborating effectively. Magnet Culture partnered with PRS to begin building stronger leaders and teams at every level of the organization across their multiple locations.

  • Reinforcement & Leadership Skill-Building

    Reinforcement & Leadership Skill-Building

    Since the initial Bootcamp training, Magnet Culture has been repeatedly asked back to various communities to provide reinforcement of our training content and lead new skill-building workshops to help managers add the necessary tools to their leadership toolbelt and build trust within their teams.

  • Workforce Retention Bootcamp

    After piloting the 6-month Bootcamp at one location for a group of leaders, PRS mandated the program be held in each location to get community leaders on the same page and help them understand today’s new workforce. The group learned valuable strategies about how to be better leaders themselves as well as how to create a place where people want to work in order to keep the talent they couldn’t afford to lose.

  • Behavioral and Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Assessments

    In order to better understand themselves and their team members, Magnet Culture conducted behavioral and EQ assessments with the PRS leaders. These individual and team reports along with the training sessions to debrief the leaders brought new perspectives helping them learn to value every contribution from others, even when those around them don’t show up the same way the leader does at work each day.

  • Keynote at the Annual Leadership Summit

    After seeing Cara’s presentation at a national senior living conference, PRS brought Cara to California to keynote their Annual Leadership Summit, where she dove into the evolution of today’s workforce and addressed the ever-changing generational dynamics within the organization. Cara also spent several hours that day walking the PRS HR leaders through the M.A.G.N.E.T. framework for retention success.

PRS shows a commitment to their employees and leaders through continued investment in professional development and retention-focused initiatives. Today, PRS is positioned to better attract and retain talent by keeping their finger on the pulse of the ever-changing workforce and their future new hires.

With Magnet Culture training, you can:

  • Stop losing great employees.
  • Extend the tenure of every new hire.
  • Increase employee satisfaction and morale.
  • Improve your employer brand in the community to attract high-level talent.
  • Improve quality, productivity and profitability.
  • Maximize the time you have with each staff member.

Enhancing Company Culture Case Study

Lochmueller Group is a regional engineering firm with an emphasis
on planning and designing state and local infrastructure improvements.

“We have made great strides to recognize that people receive information differently; they perceive information differently. Our group is now open to ‘how can I do better?’ and ‘what can I change about my approach that will drive better results?’”

Lochmueller Group

Lochmueller Group faced several challenges in maintaining a positive workplace culture, ensuring employee satisfaction, establishing effective company-wide communication, and navigating a multi-generational workforce. These obstacles posed difficulties in both attracting and retaining top-tier talent. Magnet Culture stepped in with three programs at a pivotal moment with the essentials necessary to address these challenges from a top down approach.

  • Senior Leader Retreat

    Lochmueller’s top executives and leaders gathered for a Senior Leader Retreat led by Cara Silletto. Their main focus was on addressing generational differences, preserving their positive company culture, and implementing effective strategies to attract and retain top talent.

  • Workforce Retention Bootcamp

    Lochmueller’s middle managers then completed the 8-part Workforce Retention Bootcamp to address the changes in the employment market, develop a better understanding of employee behavioral styles and motivators, and improve communication to become better bosses. They used this new knowledge to develop action plans and build an attraction culture in their workplace.

  • Behavior Assessments

    Behavior Assessments

    Lochmueller provided DISC assessments and training to their senior leaders and managers to better understand their own styles, identify the various styles of others, and, most importantly, learn when and how to adjust their approach to more effectively lead their teams. Managers then requested that all staff complete the assessments to enhance team-building efforts.

Positive company culture is an ongoing company-wide effort that takes intentionality from leadership. Today, Lochmueller’s leaders are better prepared to lead their employees more effectively and incubate a positive company culture. They are now equipped with the tools to adapt to the ever-changing workforce.

“Lochmueller Group is a place where people want to work.”

Magnet Culture training gives you the tools to:

  • Improve company culture and increase employee satisfaction.
  • Build better managers at every level with adapted leadership styles.
  • Ignite an organization-wide leadership mindset focused on growth and improvement.
  • Cultivate effective communication across the organization and departments.
  • Get your leaders and managers on the same page with consistent priorities.

The key to a successful retention strategy is just a call away.
