The competition for top talent is fierce as organizations require more specialized skills from their workforce. In order to secure top talent, employers should spend adequate time searching and hiring candidates that possess strong interpersonal skills and a desire to grow and achieve success.
Excellent talent will be increasingly difficult to maintain in the current business climate’s competitive atmosphere. CAI’s 2013 HR Management Conference will equip you with information and strategies to hold on to your best people, as well as attract new talent. Scheduled for March 6 and March 7 at Raleigh’s McKimmon Center, the conference will help you put the pieces of your talent puzzle together to develop a positive culture that reaches its business goals.
Four keynote speakers will address participants at the early March conference:
- Daniel Pink will reveal why traditional approaches to high performance backfire at most organizations and will offer alternative solutions.
- Demographic trends show that pretty soon your workforce is going to look different, work different and want to be rewarded differently. Dr. James Johnson will help you prepare.
- Based on his best-selling book, The Energy Bus, Jon Gordon presents a powerful roadmap to overcome life and work obstacles and bring out the best in yourself and your team.
- In his presentation, Dave Rendall will help you find the strengths hidden in your workforce and explore eight strategies for improving employee engagement at your organization.
Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in several breakout sessions. Topics include:
–Performance, Development and Succession: The Foundation of Talent Management
–15 Reasons You May Have a Shortage of Skilled Labor and What to Do About It
–Learning Agility: The Defining Competency for Working (and Thriving) at the Speed of Light
–Strategies for Developing and Changing the Leadership Culture
