8:35 am - 9:05 am Unleashing Potential — Talent Development Across The Employee Lifecycle

Companies that invest in their employees’ long-term growth nearly always outperform those that don’t. To unleash the human potential of their workforce, one good place for talent management to start lies simply in helping individuals understand their own talents (and limitations) a lot better than they do now. To build up their employees and develop their workforce, talent leaders need to truly understand an employees’ motivations which may certainly include compensation and salary bumps but is also driven by a lot of forces not so tangible — gaining power and influence, social recognition from their peers, socializing with a team, the need to help others or even the security of a well-planned career ladder up the rungs of the company

  • The neuroscience of employee motivations — what science reveals about seeking meaning through work
  • Developing a talent management strategy for every part of the employee lifecycle
  • Retain employees’ longer though satisfying their needs for growth and skills development

9:10 am - 9:40 am Playing For Keeps — Why Good Employees Leave And What You Can Do To Retain Them

Every minute you spend hiring or training new employees is time taken away from the actual revenue-producing line of business. While all companies need to recruit, the best ones retain their top talent and reduce the vast costs of replacing employees — a figure that stretches into the tens of millions of dollars for large-cap companies. Understanding the motivations of what makes good employees leave a company is key to preventing it in the first place. More often that not, departing employees are disengaged employees. Learn new methods of retaining top talent such as:

  • Incorporating retention-building conversations into check-ins and hold authentic conversations about what is and isn’t working for employees on a regular basis
  • Displaying consistent norms of company culture on what it takes to succeed and be promoted
  • Connecting workers to a greater sense of purpose while publicly recognizing their accomplishments
