Workplace Application: You will learn how to dramatically increase employee retention and reduce costly employee turnover.

According to a recent survey from Adecco Group North America, 54% of employees plan to look for a new job as soon as the economy turns around. The sentiment is even stronger among younger workers. Of those ages 18-29, 71% say they are likely to look for a new job after the recession. In this session, we'll discuss what you can do to keep the floodgates closed. We'll discuss why employees will be fleeing the moment things turn around and strategies you can use to prevent this stampede from happening. Learn the drivers of employee engagement and how you can create a work environment where people remain because they want to, not because they have to. We'll share five proven strategies for creating a more engaged workforce that won't bust your budgets.
