Talent: An Essential Priority | Tri-State

Hosted in Melville Thursday, December 6, 2018 7:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. PST

Event Overview

Talent. Growth. Hiring. If they’re keeping you up at night — you’re not alone. 87 percent of CEOs count talent as their No. 1 challenge.

Although most (72 percent) plan to increase hiring, and expect fierce competition, the National Center for the Middle Market reports: 44 percent cannot find candidates with the skills they need. It’s time to get creative.

Now more than ever, CEOs face critical decisions and are making strategic investments that determine their fate and fortune. It’s time to think smarter. The strengthened ability to hire, retain, engage and manage talent — as an integral part of your business strategy — will give your organization a competitive edge.

Join us for this half-day event featuring proven insights from thought leaders Joe Galvin, Chief Research officer of Vistage Worldwide, Inc.; Dan Kessler, President of Energage; and Kathleen Quinn Votaw, Founder and CEO of TalenTrust. Leave prepared to make talent a strategic focus for growing a successful, competitive business. The time is now.

Event Speakers


Dan Kessler

President, Energage

Winning culture: The only sustainable competitive advantage

It's common knowledge: Spend the incremental dollar on retaining an existing customer, rather than on acquiring a new one. Yet with employees, we spend much more recruiting new than we do retaining and empowering our current team. In this presentation from Dan Kessler of Energage, you will learn secrets gathered from 50,000 organizations and 17 million employees over the past dozen years, to build a winning employee culture that drives business results. Through highly interactive discussion, you’ll walk away with insights into your current culture and tangible steps to create the culture you want.


Kathleen Quinn Votaw

Founder/CEO, TalenTrust

People: Your biggest investment and best competitive strategy

With businesses spending 40-80 percent of gross revenues on employee salaries and benefits, it's critical this investment in human capital is calculated and leveraged to support long-term success. Kathleen Quinn Votaw will outline four ways to maximize investment in your people:

  1. Culture and employment branding
  2. Strategic recruitment
  3. Onboarding and training
  4. Retention and engagement

Be empowered by real-world, actionable examples of how to ensure talent becomes a strategic business imperative.
