We are pleased to present the next workshop in our series on: 

Thursday, May 26, 2005 – 8:00 to 10:30 a.m.

(See below for the full seminar agenda and meeting information)  

· How likely are your employees to leave if the opportunity presents itself?

· What do you do if the economic conditions of the past few years has caused morale to plummet?

·  How do you deal with the pent up dissatisfaction that will ultimately lead to increased turnover?          

While recovery is good for the economy and people in our local labor market, many CEOs have expressed concern that it may create a “Brain Drain” of their best talent.  As the economy improves this is once again the question on every employer’s mind.  According to Gallup’s most recent Q12 studies, only 30 percent of U.S. workers are engaged.  An engaged workforce pays off in reduced turnover, higher productivity, and increased profitability.

Studies are also showing that high job satisfaction is not contingent upon the economy and that many companies in the hardest hit industries have managed to maintain high employee morale.  What do they know that you don’t?  It doesn’t take much time or money to keep employees motivated, you just need to know what really matter so them.

Companies and their leaders need to take proactive measures in order to re-engage their workforces and prepare for the recovery.  Learn what you can do to prevent costly turnover.

·         Learn from the latest research on employee satisfaction

·         Discover the advantages of re-recruiting your employees

·         Understand and manage employee expectations

·         Learn the success secrets from the best places to work
