Winning the talent war

Despite declining optimism in the national economy and slowing expansion plans, more than half (56 percent) of Vistage members report plans to expand their workforce in the next year. The latest research from Vistage — with input captured from nearly 1,500 CEOs — reveals how small and midsize businesses are addressing retention and recruitment. In this session, learn the top talent management challenges reported by CEOs and how they are addressing these challenges to maintain growth.

Kay Oder, Certified Business Performance Advisor, Insperity Austin, Texas presents her “13 secrets to recruiting and retaining top talent”. In an era marked by scarcity of talent, companies are growing vulnerable to not only losing the war for talent, but even more alarming, losing the talent they already have.

This presentation from Kay will explore talent acquisition strategies that provide the infrastructure to attain and retain the right employees. Leave prepared to:

  1. Develop a strategic recruiting infrastructure, so you can avoid making mistakes that turn off the very talent you seek and want to keep.
  2. Improve your recruiting techniques and methodically organize your workforce so you’re in a better position to reach and exceed your goals.
  3. Rethink employee engagement and create a differentiated workplace to continually “recruit” existing employees, and draw in A-talent.
