With the myriad of changes confronting the tech landscape, how are tech investments perceived by decision makers?

Executives’ Club of Chicago: Onboarding and Talent Retention Best Practices

The career lifecycle of someone entering the workforce today differs greatly from those implementing the policies to train and retain these workers. According to the 2019 Akumina Millennial Manager Workplace Survey, the majority of workers under 40 share the belief that frequent job change has advanced their careers. The speed and frequency at which this generation of workers are switching jobs demands a change in how organizations onboard new workers, manage culture, and preserve and share institutional knowledge. What are some of the best practices you can employ to ensure your organization succeeds in a dynamic environment that embraces new talent? Steelcase Work Café, 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, Ste 301, Chicago. Tuesday, December 10, 7:30 am – 9:30 am.
