Regardless of the industry, employee retainment can be a constant challenge companies – and the pandemic only made things worse. For Penn-Mar, our support for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) is directly tied to our fantastic team of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs). Without their dedication and devotion to the IDD community, we would not be celebrating 40 years of success this year. In a recent article for the Baltimore Business Journal, Penn-Mar CEO Greg Miller outlines how our internal strategy for employee retention is working to keep our indispensable DSPs with us for the long-term. But the best part is that our strategy can be applied to almost any company to deliver equally great results.
