    The workplace is changing. Like it or not, employees are spreading the word about companies and their culture. Nearly three-quarters of U.S. workers aren’t engaged. Work/life balance lines are blurring. Millennials communicate differently and have different expectations. Great talent is difficult to attract, hire and maintain. Today, it’s critical to communicate effectively with recruits and employees. Tim Padgett will discuss how effective communication is paramount to success.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Communicate their brand to increase value and reputation
    2. Develop an eye for modern talent acquisition
    3. Build a workplace community
    4. Connect with current and future employees
    5. Create value and profit with engaged employees
