4 employee retention strategies for tech companies

Your company’s human resources team is most familiar with your employees’ skills, needs, and expectations and should, therefore, play a major role in executing your retention plan. Here are four talent retention strategies to include in your plan:


1. Invest in employee engagement:

In addition to providing attractive benefits packages and perks, there are simple, day-to-day actions you can take to improve employee engagement, including:

  • Ask your employees what they need to feel happier at work and how, if given the chance, they would better the company to highlight actionable steps for organizational improvement. Employee surveys are a great way to do this.

  • Provide feedback to your teams through regular informal meetings and more structured quarterly feedback sessions.

  • Encourage your employees to share ideas and ways to innovate through frequent brainstorming sessions and by fostering an open-door management policy.

However, listening is just the first step — ensure you show your employees that their voices have been heard through actions like providing status updates on feedback implementation progress.


2. Prioritize professional development

Offering internal trainings, access to online opportunities, educational resources, or the option to attend external courses will ensure your teams feel supported and that they have the skills and certifications to contribute to your company’s success. Another professional development opportunity many companies offer their employees is tuition reimbursement. It may seem like a big investment upfront, but in the long term, your employees will gain the skills required to test new markets, develop new products or services, and help you beat out the competition.


3. Implement internal recognition programs

Employee recognition can result in many additional benefits related to retention, including:

  • Promoting a healthy work culture

  • Increasing customer satisfaction

  • Maintaining employee motivation

  • Strengthening employees’ relationships with their work team

  • Reducing dependence on managers

4. Offer flexibility around working schedules and location

Top talent in today’s tech industry expects more than just the ability to work remotely — they are looking for flexible work arrangements that ensure a better work-life balance.

A few ways that flexible working arrangements can help increase retention include:

  • Increased employee loyalty

  • Attractive brand and company culture

  • Reduced stress within teams

  • Better work-life balance
