Talent Crunch: Learn how to attract, retain, and develop key employees in a competitive marketplace.

Sean and Mike will review ways to recruit the best talent in the industry and how to cultivate and maintain a staff of skilled professionals.                        

Employee recruiting – How to respond to difficulties with recruiting in a tight market. What are millennials looking for? How does this differ from boomers? This includes examples on how to build a company brand and reputation that help attract young talent and make your company stand out from the crowd. Brand and reputation is a bigger part of what young employees are looking for than in the past.

Employee retention – How to retain these key employees through new ways of thinking, not just the classic “increase pay” “increase benefits” thought process. How can you get more bang for your buck? How can employees become involved in increasing these benefits? A main part of the session will be on the “OwnershipThinking” concept of getting employees involved in the company more. When employees get more involved, it can help the company to become more profitable, build a better brand, and increase the positive reputation in the market place.  

Overall the goal is to help companies think outside the box, as millennials goals are much different than boomers and we need to be able to respond in a way that attracts this young talent pool.
