How to Attract and Retain Amazing Employees

This session is based on the current reality that many companies are facing: 

⇥ low employee retention

⇥ low employee engagement

 an inability to attract new employees for the long term

  general frustration among managers and employees because of all of these things

 

Participants will learn how to attract, recruit, and retain staff effectively by:

✔︎ Being prepared throughout the entire employee lifecycle, beginning with recruiting and onboarding

✔︎ Implementing employee training & development programs

✔︎ Becoming or hiring true leaders who listen and use empathy

✔︎ Getting rid of poor performers and those with bad attitude

 

Attend and look forward to a successful future. Don’t look backwards, as we are not going there. HR Speaker HR

Speaker Human Resources
✽ Three Things Leaders Should Know…in order to get stuff done ✽ 

This session is about reflecting as a professional and asking, “Am I part of the problem?”.  

Managers and leaders need to understand that:

✔︎  Your personality annoys us

✔︎  Common sense isn’t common and

✔︎  You suck at communicating.

Employees, managers, and leaders will come out of this session with a new perspective and a desire to change their workplace behaviors and actions immediately. 

Participants will chuckle while learning about the four personality styles using the DiSC model, and how the differences can cause – and resolve –  interpersonal conflict.  We will dive into the fact that common sense is not common …because it is a set of skills learned by a common group of people. This is why it is imperative to take away judgment and teach the skills that are lacking. Finally, the concept of active listening through distractions will be spotlighted through a short group activity. 

Wendy’s leadership book “Suck It Up, Buttercup” goes a few steps further on this topic.  

Speaker Employee Retention and Engagement
✽ Five Ways Our Employees Drive Us Crazy and What To Do About It ✽ 

 They don’t listen  

 They make so many mistakes

 They have no common sense

 They have an entitlement mentality

 They just don’t care

This is another humorous session about reflecting as a manager or leader. We will review each of these frustrations and analyze WHY employees do things to drive us crazy. 

🤪Hint: it is most likely that their manager is not using effective strategies of:

  1.  clear two-way communication,
  2.  training and development methods,
  3. making assumptions about their skills,
  4. forgetting that it is 2024, not 1990, and
  5. not engaging employees effectively.
 
Don’t go 👉🏻 finger pointing at the manager though as most managers are placed into their roles with no training or coaching and expected to magically acquire management skills through osmosis!  
 
Wendy’s trainings and conference speeches can help close these skill gaps.
