    Hiring the wrong people or losing the right ones is not only costly, but hurts the morale and momentum of your business. You want to hire the right skill set while also finding the best fit for your team. In addition, recent market downturns have affected stock options and as companies strive for profitability, their reduced budgets equal fewer benefits for employees. The average employment tenure is 16 months and decreasing and replacing a lost employee can be over 300% of his / her annual salary.

    To help you put the right strategies and tactics in place, Jennifer Vessels and Richard Houston will reveal programs, steps and proven techniques to attract and retain key employees. Designed for the entrepreneur, consultant and company executive team, the practical advice given in this workshop can be used immediately to reduce company turnover rates and build a more effective workforce for today and the future.

    Through examples and case studies, at the end of this session, you will learn:

    • How to find the right team for your business
    • How to balance stock options/compensation vs. intrinsic rewards
    • What really makes employees stay
    • Ways to leverage the company's retention strategies and success to attract new talent
    • Quick response solutions to retention issues
