Employee Retention Strategies

Challenge

Improve employee retention.

Actions

Promote employee engagement.

  • Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) allow members to develop and build leadership skills, raise awareness, educate others and contribute to communities
  • ERG members champion Northrop Grumman as a desirable workplace—promoting a culture where team members can bring their whole selves to work.

Create community.

  • We continually look for ways to help bridge the employment gap for retiring and exiting service members. Our VERITAS ERG is a resource we use to support veterans. We also support existing partnerships with external groups including Dept of Defense Hiring Heroes and Student Veterans of America.

Increase leadership development.

  • Offer growth opportunities through internal and external speaking engagements.
  • Encourage and support recognition through internal and external awards.

Continue to be an employer of choice for diversity and inclusion.

  • In 2016, we participated in 12 achievement conferences to recruit new diverse employees and develop talent. We won awards from various diversity and LGBT organizations and were named a top company for executive women. We achieved a perfect 100 point rating on the Disability Equality Index Best Places to Work for Individuals with Disabilities.
