The International Baking Industry Exposition invited Retensa’s Senior Talent Management Consultant, Talia Bender, to present on Talent Management in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ms. Bender’s session, “A Recipe for Talent Management: How to Attract and Retain Great Employees”, takes place September 7th, 2019.

Thank You to IBIE for hosting and providing the venue for us to share some Retensa wisdom. It was a complete success—a standing room only event with not a single chair left in sight.
If you were unable to attend (or find a seat), Baking Business’s article, “Bakers Develop Strategies to Retain Employees,” highlights Ms. Bender’s presentation on talent management. She addressed the employee turnover and retention issues within the baking industry. Based on Retensa’s research, over a quarter of baking companies operate with a shortage of employees. Ms. Bender warned the dangers of staying short staffed by stating, “most people underestimate how much is spent on an empty position from loss of production, to paying someone else overtime to the cost of training a replacement. Even if turnover can be reduced by a couple percentage points, that has a big difference on the bottom line.”
