Presentation: Recruiting and Retention in Iowa: The Top Four Things You Need to Know for 2018

The current labor market is as challenging as it is has been in the history of Iowa. Do employers understand what today’s employee wants to know? Do employers understand what an employee needs?  Leave with clear, current new ideas to bring back to their company. The best part of recruiting and retention today…. it’s not as difficult as it seems. However, following best practices is the key to success.

Key Objectives:

How to attract the talent you need.

  1. On boarding your talent: How thorough is your training schedule?
  2. What does my future look like as a new employee in your organization. Do you have a clear career path to share with new employees on what they can become?
  3. Communication: Does the employee know how they are performing? Do they understand their role in the organization?
