As a legal recruiter, I often advise clients to do everything in their power to keep their keepers to enhance the stability, value and growth of their firms or corporations. This article will summarize five easily implemented and market-tested strategies that will improve your retention efforts and diminish the efforts of those who try to recruit your star employees away.

� Hire the right person. As simple as it sounds, many retention problems can be avoided by careful candidate selection. Proper interviewing and screening can eliminate the turnover problems associated with rapid and careless hiring. By involving every relevant person in the hiring process and soliciting their input, you will make a more informed decision as well as show your employees you value and respect their opinions. By all means, avoid the desperation hire if at all possible and consider unique interview strategies. Most employees involved in hiring should be trained in how to conduct a proper and comprehensive interview.
