Here are a Few of the Solutions You'll Walk Away With...

A Landscape of the Labor Situation

A look at why this labor trend is different from others we have experienced and what to expect both now and into the future. (Hint: THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER!)

Your Top 3 Strategies as Employers

No matter your industry, company, size, or customer, you share the same goals and challenges as every other business out there. Learn what your top strategy MUST be if you are to survive and thrive in the new economy.

Before They Arrive...

You have work to do before you can recruit. Once new employees come in, if you cannot deliver on your promises to them, they will walk right out the door. We cover your top priorities to create the cultures, leadership, and management strategies to set the stage for your organization that attract AND retain new (and current) employees. 

Tools of the Trade

The world has changed - Have you?

If you're using the same strategies to attract talent with today's workforce, it won't work! You need new solutions to solve new problems. We'll share new strategies to find, recruit, and hire those employees. 

What They Want

If you haven't noticed, today's employees want a different set of terms and conditions than the past groups. It's not that it is different - it's that they are vocal about it. We'll cover what it takes to understand your employees, how to create a "package" that includes the right pay, benefits, culture, and engagement that can deliver what they need.

Delivering Solutions

After the "tangibles" are covered, we find that they are only the surface-level wants and needs. The real needs come in the form of flexibility, engagement, autonomy, and doing work that matters. Professional growth, social and environmental impact, volunteerism, and other elements have a far greater impact on your workforce than you might realize. We'll dig deep into what really matters, where the balance exists, and what you can do (realistically) to deliver while still meeting your business needs. 

Getting an ROI

After all of this, many managers may ask: Is there an ROI to all of this? Absolutely!

The final session culminates in the accountability to not only demonstrate where the ROIs exist but in how to hold your employees accountable. It's not enough to simply give it all away, but employers must ask for high performance and outcomes in exchange without burning out their investments.
