Topic: Strategies to Attract and Retain Top Talent
Insights from Susan Rogers and Bethany Denning of People Pinnacle

In this post-pandemic, remote-work environment, competition is on the rise to acquire and retain talented employees. Due to the ability to have employees work remotely, loss of experienced talent is a significant threat as your employees have opportunities to work elsewhere virtually. Given the challenging economic environment and financial performance pressures, how can your organization attract top talent and keep workers engaged and productive? Our guests Susan Rogers and Bethany Denning of People Pinnacle, share their insights on strategic talent management including practical steps to improve workplace culture, and attract and retain top talent.
