Retention

There are many benefits of employing and retaining Aboriginal people. In general, these benefits include creating an environment where cultural diversity enriches the activities of the employer and having staff that are able to effectively communicate, consult and interact with their communities.

Good retention strategies and incentives lead to an experienced and stable workforce where the quality of service is maintained by the workforce. This section on retention provides a number of examples in the areas of existing policies, legislative requirements and financial incentives.
