"Employer of Choice Strategies" is a five-step process designed for selecting and keeping employees, people who naturally fit into how an organization runs their business so that the employee continues to "choose" to work for the organization. "Employer of Choice Strategies" is a holistic approach, not an event or just individual incremental steps. Each step has itís own unique purpose and is structured to be in alignment with every other step.


Objectives
Teach a holistic approach to employee replacement (turnover) and keeping the employee (retention).

To understand that what works for one organization may/or may not work for another.

To help people and their organizations understand one another and to become all they want to be.

Through "Synergy" create ideas for the participant that they can take back to work and apply immediately.
