AUGUST 13, 2019
8:30-10:30 a.m.
Specialty's Headquarters, 5050 Hopyard Road, Pleasanton, CA 94588

Challenge yourself to think differently about how you hire, onboard and engage the diverse talent that enables your organization to thrive. This thought-provoking session led by Margaret (Magi) Graziano, CERS, Chief Evangelist for KeenAlignment, will dispel some myths about employee retention and provide you with insight and strategies to create an engaged, inspired, inclusive and committed workforce.

Current research suggests that one of three hiring decisions is based on insufficient information for either party to make informed choices. Similarly, one in three new hires does not make it past their one-year work anniversary. Creating a high-performance organization requires a paradigm shift and an increased focus on workforce engagement.


• Understand the current economic, demographic and generational trends your organization is facing.
• Create a talent management strategy that impacts talent attraction, selection, development and retention processes.
• Move toward “conscious” hiring and empowering your managers to choose people wisely.
• Learn strategies to maximize employee engagement.
