i4cp launches new knowledge retention benchmarking and assessment program

It's a fact: over the next 10 years, a large percentage of the labor force will be eligible for retirement. Today, many companies are already anticipating a steady decline in qualified employees available to fill key leadership roles which will soon be vacated. In addition, many of these same companies are finding high potential employees are becoming more difficult to retain in today's increasingly competitive job market. Whatever the reason, when the employee walks out the door, so does valuable information and assets for the future in which the organization has invested a great deal of time and money.

Through an exclusive group of peer companies, and backed by the latest comprehensive industry research, the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) is tackling this issue through the launch of the Knowledge Retention Accelerator™, a revolutionary program aimed at helping companies to improve knowledge retention throughout their organization. Utilizing a unique combination of benchmarking, assessment, applied research and collaboration with experts and peers, the program is designed to help organizations retain their most important asset: the knowledge that resides in the heads of their workforce.

Learn more about the Knowledge Retention Accelerator. We're also talking about knowledge retention issues and exploring recent research on subset issues such as knowledge transfer, employee mentoring and more in a knowledge retention webinar on September 17, 2008 at 1pm EDT.
