Instructor: Kathryn Newton, PhD
Level of Complexity: Foundational/Intermediate
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Employee wages and benefits represent a huge dollar investment for most employers, yet they rarely invest a commensurate amount of time and energy in selecting and retaining them. In this workshop, you will learn how to take a "systems" viewpoint of the organization, learn tools to identify productivity gaps in your firm, and evaluate changes needed in a pandemic-prone world. Balancing employee activities such as recruiting and hiring great people, onboarding, and using technology and engagement to gain employee impact are critical to maintaining high productivity. You will also learn key strategies to consider for compensation, and the newest perks you must offer to hire the best employees.
