Learn How to Recruit Top Talent at November's Breakfast Meeting

October 21, 2015 | Posted By: Connor Watkins

November 2015 Chamber Breakfast sponsored by SAFE Federal Credit Union

November's Breakfast Meeting, sponsored by SAFE Federal Credit Union, will help you grasp the mindset of the emerging workforce and answer the question: "What are the attitudes and expectations of today's workforce?"

Kathy George, Senior VP of Franchise & License at Spherion Staffing Services, will break down the eight edition of the Emerging Workforce study that has been tracking worker mindsets and trends since 1997. This edition of the study includes:

  • The latest trends in how workers find jobs, what factors influence their employment decisions, and the growing role of social employer branding in today’s recruitment landscape.
  • Growing importance of employee engagement for companies, and what factors workers feel will keep them more engaged.
  • Continued disconnect between companies and their workers when it comes to key retention drivers, and what practices/programs are most effective in building attrition.
  • Demographic shifts and the implications for succession and talent planning initiatives, including insight into the two most critical generations to companies today – Gen Y and Gen Z.
  • Why companies must leverage internal employees and customers as brand advocates, and the workplace aspects that greatly influence their propensity to fill that role.
  • Effective strategies to become an employer of choice, and what today’s Emergent companies are doing to win the intensifying battle for talent.
