Have you ever wondered why some bosses and organizations are retention magnets?  The answer; they understand that giving their people C.R.A.P. (Caring, respect, appreciation and praise) is a must.

Jeff provides a “headhunter’s” insight into the thoughts and reasoning of employees who decide or are contemplating leaving their jobs in various organizations as he reveals how giving your people C.R.A.P. and 7 other secrets are the key to employee retention.  Through humorous, real-life stories and interactive participation, Jeff has created a program which helps participants discover ways to gain a competitive edge when trying to retain talent.  

Because Jeff is a “headhunter” in addition to having 25 years in human resources leadership roles prior to starting his own company, he gives you an eye-opening glimpse into what motivates solid performers to consider leaving their employers and what gets them thinking that “the grass is greener” on the other side of the fence.

Attendees will hear real life comments from candidates Jeff has attempted to recruit that the candidate will never admit in an exit interview with human resources or tell their boss.  Jeff’s unique insight will enable participants to leave the session with actionable steps to begin to drive employee retention in their department or organization while participating in a program with great takeaways that will resonate with attendees.
