winning the talent wars
Build a Winning Culture of Attraction,
High-Performance, and Retention
In a new reality of constant change and limited resources, it is even more difficult to recruit, motivate, and retain the best talent. In a post-crisis economy, it is critical for organizations to find ways to hold onto their best employees. That means taking care of them in ways beyond just a paycheck.
You, as the employer, have two options: Resist adapting, or build a wining culture that attracts, motivates, and retains the top talent in your industry—even when working remotely or in the midst of uncertainty and change.
No, you cannot predict the future. Unfortunately, you cannot do everything for everyone. But that doesn’t mean you can allow your organization’s leadership to throw up their hands and say, “This is too much! There’s no way to engage or retain people under these circumstances.”
How can you make your organization a magnet for the best talent without throwing money and endless perks at everyone?
How can you avoid the top causes of early voluntary departure?
How can you make accountability the key to earning flexibility and generous rewards?
How can your leaders build a culture that drives retention among high performers—even when working remotely?
