A renewed emphasis on employee retention

South Carolina Business Review.png

By now, you’ve surely heard of the Great Resignation: millions of people not returning to their pre-pandemic jobs, instead seeking what they hope will be better jobs or even striking out on their own. Which is why many companies are reinvesting in employee retention strategies. Mike Switzer interviews Dr. Troy Hall, author of “Cohesion Culture: Principles to Retain Your Top Talent” in North Charleston, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
