Name: Attracting and Retaining: The Next Employer Challenge
Attracting and Retaining is part of our 2017 Seminar Series: Changes & Challenges, sponsored by Express Employment Professionals.
Now that most employers can see the light at the end of the recession tunnel, CEOs across America are turning their attention to their next great challenge, protection of their greatest asset: the knowledge of their people. Retention of your most talented employees has become the No. 1 agenda item of employers. Recent surveys indicate up to 80 percent of your employees are open to the opportunity of job change and 50 percent have already mentally checked out or are actively looking. We are also looking at the greatest transformation in the U.S. workforce in our lifetime. This session will raise each leader’s effectiveness to the benefits and tools of retention, as well as implementing foolproof hiring techniques to maximize your investment.
