Tackling Retention in the Age of Talent Scarcity: Giide’s Strategic Use of Extended DISC Profiling

Share this blog post

As businesses across the globe grapple with skill shortages and the escalating ‘war for talent,’ another critical aspect often remains overlooked—the challenge of employee retention, especially in the face of ongoing labour shortages and an aging workforce. Giide is stepping up as a true strategic partner to address these complex challenges by integrating Extended DISC profiling into our comprehensive talent management services.

Understanding the Retention Crisis

While many organisations focus on acquiring new talent, the significance of retaining existing staff cannot be understated. The labour market is tightening, exacerbated by an aging population that is exiting the workforce faster than they can be replaced. This scenario heightens the importance of not just filling positions but ensuring that employees stay and thrive long-term.

Giide’s Proactive Approach

In response to these challenges, Giide has introduced Extended DISC profiling to help organisations understand and adapt to the dynamics of their workforce more effectively. This tool is more than just a means to enhance recruitment; it’s a strategy to boost retention and foster a supportive work environment that appeals to diverse demographic groups, including the aging workforce.

Here’s how Extended DISC profiling addresses these challenges:

Personalised Employee Experience: By understanding the behavioural styles and preferences of employees, companies can tailor management strategies and work environments that increase job satisfaction and loyalty.

Strategic Recruitment: With insights from the Extended DISC reports, Giide helps companies not only to select candidates who are the right fit for the job but also those who are likely to stay, reducing turnover and the associated costs.

Effective Leadership Development: The Lead and Manage report equip’s leaders with the necessary tools to adapt their styles to meet the needs of a diverse team, including older employees who may have different expectations and needs.

Enhanced Onboarding Processes: The onboarding process is crucial for retention. Extended DISC profiling enables customised onboarding plans that help new hires, regardless of their age, integrate smoothly and feel valued from the outset.
