Beyond Compensation:  
How to Keep Your Best Employees
by Robin Toft 
You've gone to the effort and expense to hire top performers for your company-- how do you make sure they will stay with you? According to The Wall Street Journal, a high employee turnover rate can lead to costs of up to two times an employee's salary to find and train a replacement . High turnover rates can also lower a company's knowledge base and decrease performance and morale among the employees who remain.

How do you make sure your top performers stay? Offering attractive compensation and benefits is always a good start, but there are many other strategies for keeping your valuable employees with you.
Toft Group is Growing! 

Toft Group is expanding to better serve the needs of innovative life sciences, biotech and health-tech companies who are looking to fill  highly specialized leadership roles. We are happy to introduce you to the two newest members of our team: Michele Mantynen as Director of Marketing Communications, and Sarah Cueto as Executive Search Consultant.

Michele Mantynen has worked for over 20 years in marketing and communications roles for biotech/biopharma companies including Genentech, ViroLogic, Monogram Biosciences and Portola Pharmaceuticals.
