Conference Will Address Ways to Reduce Employee Turnover
New York, NY, February, 2006 – With a 20 percent decrease in low skilled jobs and fewer high skilled workers, there are less qualified candidates to fill positions in today’s growing economy. More businesses are having difficulty, not only recruiting qualified candidates, but retaining them as well. Small and mid-size businesses in particular are struggling in keeping top talent. Chason Hecht, a retention expert and Retensa President, will present on recruiting and retention with the emergent workforce in February. The presentation will be directed towards small and midsized business owners.
Growing businesses recognize that they cannot just look at larger companies who have become employers of choice. Large companies have strategic recruitment and selection, orientation, training and organizational communication teams that make them attractive to high performing candidates. Small and midsized businesses however do not have the same time and resources to invest in attracting high performers. The result is that small businesses are faced with the struggle to find other innovative means to attract top talent.
Mr. Hecht will highlight the impact of employee turnover in both time and cost within these growing businesses. He will also discuss how to hire the right employee the first time around in order to mitigate the effects of high turnover. In addition, he will present on the emerging employee and how the changing needs of employees impact retention. Mr. Hecht will present on which best practices are best suited to engage employees of small and midsized businesses.
