Topic No. 1: Recruiting

  • How to measure the results of your recruiting strategy.
  • Hiring based on data — not gut — to grow your company.
  • Shifting focus to quality over quantity in building candidate pipelines.

Topic No. 2: Retention

  • Utilizing a four-part discipline to annually align people strategy with business strategy.
  • Identifying the four forces of disengagement that create organizational drag, turnover and block achievement of results.
  • Applying practical ideas to create magnetic work cultures that retain top talent.

Event Speakers


Kathleen Quinn Votaw

Founder & CEO, TalenTrust

Your approach to hiring is all wrong

A recent issue of the Harvard Business Review states: Businesses have never done as much hiring as they do today. They’ve never spent as much money doing it. And they’ve never done a worse job of it. Kathleen Quinn Votaw of TalenTrust will outline key findings from the HBR issue, offering expert context and clarification for executives of middle-market companies. Leave with best practices to:

  • Fix the strategies and tactics failing most firms.
  • Find the right balance of recruitment and retention.
  • Shift focus to quality over quantity in building candidate pipelines.

President, ADVISA

Talent optimization: Out with the old, in with the new

CEOs must abandon old human capital paradigms in favor of more agile talent optimization strategies to retain the talent they need to stay competitive. Future-focused leaders own — and don’t delegate to HR — the important work of creating magnetic work cultures that attract the right talent. Future-focused leaders know, their most important decisions are people decisions. And they refuse to make them capriciously and without data.

In this session, Heather Haas will provide the information and tools you need to align your people strategy with your business strategy to achieve desired results.

  • Gain a four-part discipline to annually align people strategy with business strategy.
  • Identify the four forces of disengagement that create organizational drag, turnover and block achievement of results.
  • Leave with practical ideas for creating magnetic work cultures to retain top talent.
