September 27 Christian Care Senior Living Community • Mesquite


Whether or not you joined us last year, you'll want to make plans to join us this September as we dive deeper into workforce needs and focus on the Staying Power: why your employees leave & how to keep them longer. 

While some of today’s workforce is made up of deep-rooted, dependable staff, a larger number of positions are now a revolving door of turnover. Learn how to slow this revolving door and maximize the time you have with employees.

  • Discover current employee turnover trends and future staffing projections
  • Uncover the real reasons employees leave most organizations and ways to encourage them to stay
  • Learn strategies for preparing your organization to manage shorter-term workers

Leah Brown, Talent Retention Strategist for Crescendo Strategies, will be back to present on this timely topic. By the time you leave this full-day workshop, sponsored by Sodexo, you’ll discover the true cost of employee turnover, know how to assess your brand as an employer, and walk away with realistic plans for improving your workforce woes in any department.
