The value of ActivateWork retention coaching

One of the biggest frustrations in recruiting is the disappointment of investing in a new hire only for them to leave in the first few months. We offer a unique continuum of recruiting and retention coaching that is proven to decrease turnover.

We build strong relationships with our candidates over time, train and prepare them to succeed in new careers, then coach them through their first 12 months at your company to ensure they adjust, excel, and thrive.



Meeting weekly during the first 6-weeks, an ActivateWork Coach helps your new hire adjust in their new role and avoid culture shock.

Skills coaching focuses on a foundation of self-knowledge and professionalism:

  • Time Management
  • Attendance
  • Grow Model Mindset
  • Values
  • Stress Management


ActivateWork Coaches meet with your new hire bi-weekly to develop self-regulation and ensure strong performance. ActivateWork also provides wrap-around support for potential barriers to retention like transportation, childcare, and mental health.

  • Creating a Positive Relationship with Leaders
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Conflict Management
  • Demonstrating Initiative
  • Executive Function


As your new hire becomes more skilled and confident in their job, an ActivateWork Coach helps address complex work and life issues, leading to a dedicated, flourishing employee.

Through guided questioning, your new hire will self-identify where they need further growth for a customized approach.

  • Composure
  • Motivating Others
