Thursday, March 31, 2022 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (Pacific Time)
Even during regular times, turnover can create challenging circumstances. The impact of the COVID pandemic (remote work, onsite shifts); the increased workforce reshuffle (retirements, retention issues); and the introduction of nontraditional competitors (high tech), … along with increasing inflationary pressures in the U.S. are intensifying employee attraction and retention concerns. The current environment is leaving many employers to ask “why are so many people leaving us right now?”, “how do we mitigate our retention risks?” and “how do we create a more attractive value proposition?”.
To discuss these topics and more, experts in the field of total rewards – Catherine Hartmann, Global Work, Rewards & Careers Practice Leader, and Kate King, PNW Work & Rewards Leader, from WTW will share research and strategies on how organizations are rising up to meet the total rewards challenges of 2022, including:
- Remote work, work design and career enablement… priorities for the new workforce.
- Pay considerations cascading from ESG and DE&I goals… impact on compensation.
- Benefit strategies for today’s shifting workforce… flexibility in design.
In response to turnover, the attraction and retention of key talent is more important than ever to run a successful business. So please join us for a lively discussion on responding to this issue with our speakers and your Southern California peers.
Our guest speakers on this topic will be:
