Attracting & Retaining Top Talent: Becoming an Employer of Choice
August 20, 2019 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
Speaker: Raymond Lee | CEO, Careerminds
Employees have options and are not afraid to take them. The economy has boomed. Growth in demand for workers has outpaced the growth in supply of workers. Increased job growth decreased unemployment and slow workforce growth have come together to give employees options and the power to choose where they work. As the quits rate reached an all-time high, it’s clear that employees are not afraid to seize available opportunities. Employers are not yet responsive to a marketplace where employees are in control. As the ratio of unemployed persons to open jobs drops to 1:1, employers must fight to get workers who are currently employed, and then keep them. Companies must make intentional efforts to attract and retain talent to meet the demands of their business. Employer branding and talent value proposition are critical today more than ever before in attracting and retaining top talent.
In this session we’re going to explore the top reasons why employees are leaving companies to pursue opportunities elsewhere and also discuss ways to retain your top talent through career development, building strong cultures, and employee flexibility. We’re also going to address the skills gap that exist in today’s digital revolution.
