The Conference Board: Attracting and Retaining Talent Amid ‘The Great Resignation’


In the world before Covid, businesses were investing heavily in culture – leading to higher retention rates, more productivity, and better business outcomes. But now, at a time when we are seeing the greatest levels of employee turnover in recent history, leaders are facing a new set of urgent challenges: winning the new war on talent, retaining their top people, and leveraging culture to ensure employees feel more connected to the business than ever before. To be successful, leaders need to mitigate the risks of culture cracks that emerged during the Covid era – and make sure that they don’t break wide open and add to the stream of resignations companies are already facing. In this session, Daggerwing Group – a top-ten rated global change consultancy with clients such as HPE, Nestlé, Dropbox, Pfizer, and more – will share proven ways to create a culture system that builds on past investments, fosters an environment that is based on connections, and drives more top talent to join – and stay at – your organization.
