As organizations struggle to do more with less—contain costs, while maintaining productivity—they appear to be doing so on the backs of their best workers. Today’s businesses are closing acute productivity gaps by overstretching those employees that remain after layoffs and cost cutting measures. This new economic reality may provide short term answers for firms fighting for equilibrium, but with engagement scores trending downward it appears to be doing damage to an employee’s long-term performance and commitment.
Join us for a provocative discussion as we examine an emerging class of the modern day worker—“the unsung hero”. These are employees who have a high sense of urgency, who are compelled to move forward, who have supported their companies through the rocky changes of the recession, and who today find themselves unrecognized and unappreciated for their efforts. Learn more about who they are and how to identify them. We also will examine what makes them so attractive to competitors and what you can do to retain them as a new “post recession” battle for talent emerges. Lastly, for those of you who are busy hiring these individuals, we will talk about how you can keep them and ensure that they do not fall into the same trap in your firm that led them to exit their last organization.
