Recruitment & Retention Workshop – November 19th – Renaissance Austin Hotel

Anne Petrik, Sr. Director of Research, Vistage Worldwide, Inc. flies in from the west coast to co-lead our November 21st breakfast workshop on Recruitment and Retention Workshop. Along with Austinite Kay Oder, Insperity’s Business Performance Advisor, members, direct reports and guests will walk away with new ways to onboard talent and keep your key employees will think twice in taking that phone call from a recruiter.

Winning the talent war

Despite declining optimism in the national economy and slowing expansion plans, more than half (56 percent) of Vistage members report plans to expand their workforce in the next year. The latest research from Vistage — with input captured from nearly 1,500 CEOs — reveals how small and midsize businesses are addressing retention and recruitment. In this session, learn the top talent management challenges reported by CEOs and how they are addressing these challenges to maintain growth.

Kay Oder, Certified Business Performance Advisor, Insperity Austin, Texas presents her “13 secrets to recruiting and retaining top talent”. In an era marked by scarcity of talent, companies are growing vulnerable to not only losing the war for talent, but even more alarming, losing the talent they already have.

This presentation from Kay will explore talent acquisition strategies that provide the infrastructure to attain and retain the right employees. Leave prepared to:

  1. Develop a strategic recruiting infrastructure, so you can avoid making mistakes that turn off the very talent you seek and want to keep.
  2. Improve your recruiting techniques and methodically organize your workforce so you’re in a better position to reach and exceed your goals.
  3. Rethink employee engagement and create a differentiated workplace to continually “recruit” existing employees, and draw in A-talent.

I grew up in Carlsbad, north San Diego County, lost my dad as a teenager, went into the USAF for four years and hired on with 3M in 1969. Received my AA from Santa Barbara City College, BA and Masters from Redlands University and after 33 plus years, I retired from 3M in 2002. As I look back on my life, I have been creating myself and developing my skill sets to be a business coach and a Vistage Chair. I am president of SEOT, a "personal improvement" consulting firm spending most of my time working with Central Texas executives running small to medium size for-profit companies who are focusing on improving their profitability greater than their competition. My area of interest is assisting senior executives in creating a better balance between business commitments and personal relationships. I also facilatate three leadership labs each consisting of a dozen owners, presidents and CEOs. We meet monthly both in a group setting as well as in a 1-to-1 coaching session. Our focus is to sharpen each others' skills in becoming better leaders, making better decisions and taking ourselves and companies to that next level. Who are we? My members are experienced top executives who recognize that they don’t have all the answers and who actively seek the company of successful peers—both to give and receive insights and ideas. My members mine the 200 plus years of chief executive experience that comes together in our monthly meetings and members are eager to offer their own experience and insights in the process. As a group, we spend our time exploring topics members can't discuss anywhere else. My members have many other places where they can engage in idle, "cocktail party" chatter. Our mission is to provide the setting for discussing the "undiscussable." Where or who can you go to for confidential, honest feedback to assist you in minimizing your personal "Worry List"?
