    - Which myths and misperceptions about selling get in the way of cross-functional collaboration
    - How you can communicate with sales and get what you need from them
    - The drivers behind sales productivity that affect you, too
    - Why it seems like sales gets certain privileges and perks

    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.

    - 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.
