Step 6: Develop the Action Plan [2.1.0.j]

If you are following this process in its entirety, you have completed:

In Step 1, you identified retention, turnover, and vacancy rates for your organization and data on effective and ineffective recruitment and retention practices.
In Step 2, you summarized your recruitment and retention data and used that information to identify the most critical job position.
In Step 3, you clarified the critical position and identified supports necessary for all staff in that position to be effective.
In Step 4, you identified the responsibilities and scope of the selected position.
In Step 5, you identified a strategy and possible intervention.

If you complete Step 6 you will have:

  • Defined outcomes for your intervention;
  • Developed an intervention action plan with timetables;
  • Enlisted support;
  • Determined how you will assess your plan;
  • Planned for communication; and
  • Finalized your plan for implementation.
This is the final step in building a successful recruitment or retention plan.
