Evening workshop and networking with Michele Bush & Tina Binder

Find, Foster & Keep – the “un-corporate way”: Practical approaches to mitigate the challenges of attracting, developing & retaining staff and resources.

Whether you have 2 part-time work associates or 200 full time employees, the direct and indirect costs of losing and changing staff can be up to 3X their base wage.

Join us on November 13th for a mini-workshop exploring best practices to MAXIMIZE your staff’s engagement with your business and MINIMIZE costs.

If you thought it was too expensive or too time consuming to invest in solutions to attract, develop and retain staff, Tina and Michele will have you thinking differently.  You will leave the session with valuable ideas and practical tips to increase your success with finding, fostering and keeping the necessary resources who help your business thrive.
