Collaborative Conversations | Workforce Attraction and Retention: Insights from the Field

Join us to dig into attraction and retention in the workplace with a focus on employee retention during the great resignation (or what we are calling the great reassessment). As employees reassess what matters most to them in their personal and professional lives, changing organizations could be the answer to improved happiness, more feelings of inclusivity and enhanced overall well-being.

But your staff are your competitive advantage, so how do you go about attracting and retaining them?

Join this panel conversation as we explore a variety of new ideas to enhance staff satisfaction with your organization. Learn what these HR leaders are doing to attract and retain their workforce and which strategies they are finding to be most valuable and have meaningful impact.

HR HotSpot: Grow Your Influence and Impact by Adding "Sales" to your Toolkit

Many HR professionals are uncomfortable with the word sales because it conjures up feelings of manipulation and dishonesty.  HR needs to get comfortable – sales is not bad!  

As a matter of fact, most CEOs still come from Finance or Sales for a reason. It’s more than just their ability to track the money and make the money, it’s about their ability to sell change, opportunity, and initiatives internally.

Find the right message and the right way to spread it so that it motivates others to “buy” what you are selling.

First, you are ALWAYS selling yourself and your expertise. The “sales” you are doing can be used with applicants applying for positions, to finance new benefits for employees and your budget requests, and to the c-suite toward your HR initiatives.

In this session of HR HotSpot, Deborah Jeffries, Vice President of HR Answers, will share how HR professionals can us “sales” to gain influence and sell company initiatives.

HR HotSpot is a series of webinars from TERRA Staffing Group that deliver actionable insights and best practices related to human resources, staffing, employment law, and more.
