Cara Silletto
Workforce Wake-Up Call the Case for Operationalizing Turnover

Presented by Cara Silletto | MBA, CSP, President & Chief Retention Officer Magnet Culture, a Crescendo Strategies


Wednesday | Febuary 14 | 1:30 pm-3:00 pm

Workshop Description

In the current workforce landscape, employees have the upper hand with “now hiring” signs on every corner. Staffing challenges and employee turnover are here to stay. It’s time for leaders to rethink staffing stability and set realistic goals, budgets, and business models around unavoidable turnover. The best way to increase employee retention is to plan for and adjust current operations to manage impending levels of employee turnover and make the proper long-term retention investments.

This session will explore strategies for operationalizing turnover so your organization can plan for sustainable success. As the saying goes, failing to plan is planning to fail. Make your organization a place where keeping people is an actual goal and not just a recurring discussion.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover current employee turnover trends and future staffing projections
  • Learn ways to plan and implement strategies to prepare for on-going turnover
  • Determine strategies to close the gap to keep people longer and improve profitability
