Benefits For Attending:


Turnover is a major challenge in a full-employment economy. Employers end up spending too much time, money and effort recruiting, selecting, onboarding, training, and retaining productive workers. Growing turnover has a habit of escalating and simply getting worse. This webinar describes a robust approach to reducing avoidable turnover by emphasizing retention through every step of the HR lifecycle that includes recruiting, selecting, onboarding, training, and rewarding workers. The webinar also looks at ways to improve exist interviews and use employee engagement surveys as “early warning systems” to identify trouble spots and act on them before they provoke turnover.
