Event Description

Smart businesses know that a skilled team of employees is the key to ongoing success. Join SCE at the upcoming Talent Conference to learn how today’s top companies are assembling terrific teams and getting them to stick around.

The conference will include a keynote presentation by Rebecca Ryan of Next Generation Consulting. In her presentation, "They Love Me, or Will They Leave Me? Six Factors That Turn On Top Talent," Rebecca inspires us to consider: Why do some of the people you WISH would leave your organization STAY, and some of those you wish would STAY, leave? How can your organization be future-ready when Baby Boomer retirements affect you and your customers? And what do great managers have in common, when it comes to forming and leading great teams? Author of Life First, Work Second, and ReGENERATION, Rebecca is earning accolades as “a voice for the next generation.”

An additional keynote presentation by Sharla Avila from Southwest Airlines will uncover their on-boarding program and other secrets to retention success.

Breakout Sessions Include:

"Benefits… It's More Than Healthcare and Vacations” – panel discussion with Rocket Clicks, Miller Coors, Sargento and Direct Supply about those “other” benefits, moderated by Rose Iannelli
