  • The PFPS Recipe for Retaining Top Talent
    The PFPS Recipe for Retaining Top Talent
    Deb Calvert, Executive Coach, president of People First Productivity Solutions Recorded: Feb 5 2019 42 mins
    Slow down that revolving door of talent! Keep the people you want to have on your team! How? That's the BIG question.

    And we're going to answer it in this webinar. We'll take a look at the research and best practices that make some employers better at retaining top talent than others. Spoiler alert: It's not because they pay more or have better free food in their cafeteria! What they've got is a higher level of employee engagement. And you can have that, too.

    In this presentation, we'll show you how:

    - Employee engagement really does matter when it comes to retention (and every other indicator of business success!)
    - You can boost engagement levels and have a positive impact on retention (and every other indicator of business success!)
    - HR and front line managers can impact employee engagement even in a difficult corporate environment
    - YOU can make a difference that makes a positive impact

    There's a reason that human capital tops the list of C-Suite concerns in 2019. And we're going to cover that, too. We'll address some of the myths and mis-perceptions that get in the way of truly engaging and retaining people in your organization. You'll also receive a free checklist for daily engagement activities that you can distribute to all your managers. Don't miss this presentation from Deb Calvert, president of People First Productivity Solutions -- we can help you build organizational strength by putting PEOPLE first.
