How to attract and keep top talent in a time of unprecedented choice

We are experiencing a business environment where access to top talent is limiting growth for an increasing number of organizations. As a result, the most desirable people not only have more choices of where they can work, but also have increased expectations of their employees. This fact has many organization struggling with how to create an environment that top talent wants to be and wants to grow.

Meeting the workforce challenge means changing the game

In this workshop you will be introduced to powerful concepts that will provoke creative ideas you can implement to not only improve your ability to attract the talent you need now, but also to create an environment where that talent wants to grow more valuable over time. Even more importantly, this workshop is designed around creating an experience where you and other attendees will learn to apply these concepts in real-time, and design them to meet the unique culture and objectives of your own organizations.

Who should attend and why

This workshop is designed for executives responsible for meeting their organizations talent demand, and leaders implementing HR, Recruiting and talent development initiatives. Attendees of this workshop will leave this experience an awareness of and practice with:

  • A new, and powerful distinction that will allow you to see new and creative possibilities in which to meet the challenge
  • Three key attributes that if your organization demonstrates can increase the engage ment level of every member of your organization now and in the future
  • Pragmatic things you can apply that will to vastly improve the Interview Process, Performance Reviews and Talent Develpment practices
