Re-Recruiting Your Top Performers
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. | $27 for Chamber Members | $40 for Non-Members | Ramada Plaza & Suites and Conference Center

Presenters: Barb Belcher, vice president of human resources, YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties; Dawn Lahlum, president, Park Co. Realtors; Amber Unser, director of HR for Tecton and Integrity; Rhonda Young, HR manager, Hornbacher’s

We all know the importance of recruiting talented new employees to fill open positions in our organizations. But shouldn’t top-performing current employees get equal attention? Maybe it’s time your organization seriously considers a “re-recruitment” strategy. This is more than a focus on workplace culture or an occasional employee survey; it is a strategic process that keeps your best employees engaged and challenged so they stay at your organization.

At this session, we will hear from a panel of area employers that already have effective re-recruitment practices and policies in place. We’ll learn what makes each of their strategies work, and help you identify an action plan that will succeed in your business.
