"Retaining Talent in a Competitive Market"

FREE For NJSA Members

Who Should Attend:
Executive and workforce management professionals; staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions professionals; company owners; corporate executives; search and placement professionals; sales and business development professionals

For many organizations, the challenge of developing an effective team of employees is viewed primarily as a matter of recruitment. To this end, employers spend a great deal of time and energy on the mechanics of hiring, often ignoring an equally, if not more crucial factor in the workforce talent equation: Retention.

In order to succeed and grow, employers not only need the best employees they can find, they also need to match the right individuals for each role - and they need those individuals to stay engaged, fulfilled and committed to the organization's long-term goals. 

In this webinar attendees will learn:
  • Targeted recruitment plan
  • Synchronize recruitment and engagement
  • Branding as part of recruitment
  • Social Recruiting
  • Diverse workforce
