Webinars

Since much in the industry has changed, NAWLA has recognized that its members and the industry are looking for ways to learn about current issues.

Webinars have been particularly effective lately, as companies have cut back both their travel and training budgets. The webinars allow employees to get the information they need without having the time and expense of an onsite program. It also has enabled companies to have multiple employees to attend, which always helps with the takeaways and long-term implementation of the knowledge.

Winning the War on Talent

Date and Time:  Wednesday, August 17, 2022 | 2:00-2:30 p.m. CDT
Presenter: Alex Chausovsky, Director of Analytics & Consulting, Miller Resource Group

Proven Strategies to Attract, Hire and Retain Your Most Valuable Asset

The war for talent is escalating. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up highly performing “impact players” and supercharge their growth. What kind of an organization are you? More importantly, what kind do you want to be in the future?

In this fourth of six webinars, Alex will discuss talent retention. We will explore the reasons why workers choose to leave organizations, identify the top predictors of turnover, and convey the leading factors that drive talent retention. We’ll also identify key retention metrics to track with the goal of improving this component of your workforce strategy.
