Talent Grab Series
October 21-23, T/TH, 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
WCCBI, #5557, $299
Workforce Planning: If organizations look at supply and demand when purchasing raw materials, fuel, utilities, and other vital goods necessary to run our organizations, why would they not give the same energy to planning and managing the supply and demand of our most valuable assets - our people? Workforce planning allows organizations to "see around corners" and avoid business interruptions often caused by a lack of a skills pipeline.
Workforce Acquisition and Onboarding: Has employee onboarding in your organization been reduced to an administrative series of events followed by a handoff to the new employee's supervisor? If so, you could be missing a valuable opportunity to ensure engagement for the long term. Understanding how employee acquisition and onboarding play a vital role in employee retention can save organizations a fortune in time, money, and effort.
Employee Engagement: Many leaders don't recognize the difference between employee satisfaction and employee engagement - or how to identify either. Once this distinction is made and leaders have the right tools to identify the engagement levels within their workforce, the door opens to many more possibilities for increased productivity, cost savings, and customer satisfaction.
