In today’s world, where unemployment continues to decline, retention is critically important to an organization’s success.  Given one of the major drivers of retention is cultural fit, first impressions are crucial; candidates begin gauging fit before they even walk through the door.  Competitive organizations are recruiting with fit in mind, and are taking steps to align organizational development objectives with candidate strengths.  This workshop redefines the concept of “recruiting” and explains why an effective recruitment process extends far beyond the employment offer.  Participants will leave understanding how transparency, a clear value proposition, and right-sized employee development can help organizations “Recruit to Retain.”
