HR Symposium 2020 - Acquiring & Retaining Top Talent

HR Symposium 2020 - Acquiring & Retaining Top Talent

One of the few things we can definitely be certain about is that Brexit has brought uncertainty. There may be a recession, there may not, regardless of the outcome.

In a recession, you need to retain your best people to survive and, hopefully, thrive.

During the current times of almost full employment in Ireland, you need to acquire the best people in the face of stiff competition and a short supply of labour because there will be a higher turnover of staff.

That should come as no surprise - statistically speaking, the top 10% of your people will be approached by the competition during a recession and the top 60% will be approached during full employment.

This event on 25th March 2020 at the Red Cow Moran Hotel, held in association with Eversheds Sutherland, provides practical advice, examples and options for acquiring and retaining top talent, regardless of the economic outlook.

We’re currently finalising the programme but current sessions and takeaways include:

  1. In Brief: Legal-Island’s Annual Review of Employment Law Refresher Session: Takeaway: Comprehensive notes and key points on the big employment law developments you need to know.
  2. Talent Retention and Development: Takeaway: A checklist of practical flexible options and a list of organisations that can help you achieve a more flexible working environment that will help you attract and retain staff.
  3. How to Become (and Remain) a Trusted Employer: Takeaway: A checklist of recommended actions based on empirical evidence.
  4. Ready to Resume Programme: Takeaway: A template for consideration should you wish to create your own scheme to re-engage currently inactive knowledge workers.
  5. Top Performers: Performance Conversations and Motivation of Millennials: Takeaway: Template checklist of options, questions, suggestions and coaching techniques that equip managers with tools to motivate staff, particularly Millennials.
  6. Culture Change Takeaway: Case studies on transforming an organisation’s culture and improving performance
