    Winning the War for Talent: Presented by Chris Czarnik, owner of Career [Re]Search Group.  Chris Czarnik is an author, coach, trainer, and subject matter expert on talent recruiting,

    engagement, and retention in today’s environment. Chris is the architect of critical theory and processes designed to transform your workforce. He has over 20 years’ experience as a former military officer, human resource manager, career services manager, and job search advisor.

    The talent landscape has changed. Have you adjusted to those changes?  Is there a different or better way that can be successful?  An entirely new but logical way to evaluate and react to the talent shortage that is actionable and proven to work.  Hear of a new way to recruit, engage, retain and develop talent inside their organization.

    Workshop framework includes:

    • Understanding the cost of an open position

    • Is this a business strategy or an HR issue?

    • Are people UNWILLING or UNABLE to come to work for you?

    • How can your current employees actively help recruit talent into your organization

    • Understanding Personas, How to find people that match and change the way you advertise

    • What do turnover spikes tell us and how to improve retention

    • What if your employees could create an internal career map within your organization to drive their own development and increase retention…with no extra work for HR or managers?

    The big idea is to turn HR into a proactive talent finding organization using many ideas that are already used within your sales organization. Participants will be able to answer the following:

    • If people are ABLE but UNWILLING to come to work for us what do we do next?

    • What is your reputation in the community as an employer and why are people going elsewhere?

    • Employees driving and guiding their own growth inside the organization is possible

    Note: Due to the interactive nature of this event, this is an in-person session only
