Retaining Top Talent

Breakout: Creating a High Culture IQ to Engage, Motivate and Retain Top Talent 

How do you grow, invest-in and ultimately retain your high performers? How do you recognize a high performer in your organization? What characteristics might you see in a high performer? High performers are those employees that stand out in any organization as highly engaged and passionate. They consistently exceed expectations, serve as management’s go-to people for difficult projects because they enthusiastically accept challenges and have a track record of getting the job done. Come to this interactive session to engage with a truly experienced panel including a City Manager and an Organizational Development Manager. You are sure to enjoy this session as you, gain insight on how to implement professional development programs and policies, create cultures that recognize and reward high-performers, and execute innovative strategies to retain top talent. This session will be fast-paced, highly engaging and interactive with many opportunities for networking
