Why you should Attend
Is your organization having trouble attracting, engaging and retaining the workforce you need? Business leaders know that they can’t achieve their business objectives without having the right talent, fully engaged. There is significant cost associated with both disengaged employees and turnover. What you’ve been doing to attract, engage and retain employees may not be working. Employees want workplaces that give them purpose and meaning in their work.
