Protect the Future of Your Business

An Allied Executives Symposium & Business Expo

 

Thursday, November 29th, 2018 from 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m

 

Drive anywhere in the metro area and you'll notice "Help Wanted", "We're Hiring", and "Apply Now!" sings plastered on billboards, windows, and buildings everywhere you look. A major impediment to growth is being unable to staff the organization to deliver the proverbial goods.

The number of job openings in today's market combined with the lack of available labor supply means that existing workers have the freedom to hop from job to job, leaving managers and leaders scratching their heads and asking, "If we finally get these workers in the door, what can we do differently to jeep them from walking out?"

This presentation will unpack what employers can do now and in the near future to recruit top young talent, retain them, and engage them day-to-day. This presentation will provide owners, managers, and leaders:

  • Insight into how every generation shows up to work and why

  • Practical solutions to more effectively attract next generation talent to their organization, and

  • Specific tactics you can use to adapt your communication style to better connect with younger generations
