6.0 The Steady State
The Strategy will result in an evergreen process that engages in ongoing collection and analysis of attrition and retention data to assess and address current and upcoming attrition concerns. Adhering to the proposed principles, the CAF Retention Strategy will focus on retaining CAF talent and reducing unhealthy attrition by addressing dissatisfiers, investigating and addressing institutional factors that could contribute to the occurrence of misconduct leading to release and removing barriers, while maintaining operational effectiveness to achieve Canada’s defence mandate. It is essential to understand that the efforts guided by this Strategy are aiming for a long term impact and change which may take years to fully realize.
The CAF Retention Strategy will be successful when the CAF has reached a steady state of continually incorporating forward thinking to govern, implement, adjust and promote people-focused policies and programs to address unhealthy attrition, such that attrition rates are predictable and manageable.
