Event Description:
Learn How to Attract and Retain Top Talent at the Thurston Chamber’s September Forum
  • Want to attract and retain 20-something employees?
  • Interested in keeping and motivating great staff members?
  • Is there a solution to high employee turnover?
 
During and after the Great Recession, employers could be picky about who they hired because unemployment was high and job openings were scarce. In addition, they could raise job application requirements like asking for a college degree, even if the job didn't necessarily require one.
 
Today, that is no longer the case. According to the Labor Department, there were 6 million open jobs in the United States in April. Unemployment is the lowest it has been since 2007. This is great news for workers. Employers are ready to hire and they may pay more to recruit top talent. However, for business owners and employers, this worker shortage environment means that skilled employees may shop around for a better job with better pay and benefits.
 
How can employers recruit and retain their talent? Join the Thurston County Chamber for Forum on September 13 to learn how you can attract and retain the talent you need for business success. We'll share best practices from Thurston County employers who are retaining top talent. Learn about upskilling, training, mentoring and how to diversify your workforce. Finally, learn why investing in workforce development today will reap benefits in the years to come.     
 
Forum is Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 11:30 a.m. at the Hotel RL Olympia.
 
The cost to attend Forum is $35 for general admission; $25 for online prepaid chamber members and $30 for members at the door. Register today!
