Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em: Getting the Good Ones to Stay version 2021

Tuesday, April 27, 3PM ET (60 min)
Dr. Beverly Kaye, internationally known expert on career development and employee engagement and retention

Gaining and sustaining a competitive edge, especially in the face of today’s complex global economy, will demand the commitment, energy and contributions of employees. Companies that don’t nurture the talent they have will not survive. Stability in the workforce doesn’t just happen – it is driven by leaders who recognize that high performance is necessary despite ever-changing market conditions.

Shortsighted leaders believe that key talent will stay. They do not consider the productivity loss that results from disengaged employees. They believe it is about money, perks, and benefits over which they have no control. Employees want fair pay, they also want challenging, meaningful work, a chance to learn and grow, recognition, respect, and a manager who understands these factors. These are vital to becoming an employer of choice and to adapting and thriving in this shifting global economy.

This session lays out a menu of practical “how-to” strategies that managers at any level can apply to drive higher levels of engagement and retention that directly impact quality.


Why Post-COVID Recovery in Talent Acquisition Needs RPO

Tuesday, May 4, 3PM ET (30 min)
Presented by KellyOCG

Many organizations have scaled down their talent acquisition or recruitment arm as a result of last year. For those on pace for a “full recovery”, their ability to find, hire and meet talent needs, fast, will be their differentiator. The opportunity for HR to overhaul their talent approach with the help of technology and RPO is plentiful. During this livestream, you’ll learn how, with the business case for new technologies and new ways of working that enable a more enjoyable experience for both candidates and hiring managers.


Reimagining Remote Work

Tuesday, May 25, 3PM ET (30 min)
Melissa Swift, Global Workforce Transformation Leader and Laura Keffler, Senior Principal, Leadership Development Advisory, Korn Ferry

The pandemic has been a catalyst for change in the way we work, and a remote workforce is likely to remain part of the normal operating rhythm for most businesses moving forward.  A recent Korn Ferry survey found 75% of organizations said they will operate more virtually after COVID. As businesses prepare for a new way of work, it is time to assess what is working and implement an effective remote work model to inspire performance and retain talent over the long term.

Join Korn Ferry in this session to learn:

  • The implications of remote work for talent management and acquisition: remote-able work vs remote-able talent.
  • Maintaining a healthy productivity during remote work: team charters.
  • It’s more than location. Take action on all levers: the who, what, when, where, why, and how of work.
