Retaining Great Talent: How to Use Inclusive and Equitable Practices to Reduce Turnover, Improve Engagement, and Avoid Disasters

Speaker: Dr. J Nikol Jackson-Beckham

Date & Time: Thursday, February 2, 3:30-4:45pm

The “Great Resignation”, “Quiet Quitting”, and “Pandemic Burnout” have changed the American labor market in profound ways. Not only is it increasingly difficult to find great talent, retaining talent is a growing challenge as well. This is especially the case for small businesses with limited resources to invest in traditional wage and benefits packages. In recent studies by Deloitte and Fidelity Investment, millennials and Gen Z workers reported they would take a substantial pay cut for improved work-life balance, career development opportunities, positive company culture, and the opportunity to do purposeful work. 

In this seminar, Dr. J Jackson-Beckham of Crafted For All will demonstrate how Inclusive, equitable, and just business practices can help employers of all sizes develop and retain great talent by addressing the areas that younger workers are mosts concerned about. Attendees will learn about:

  • Non-traditional and affordable employee benefit and recognition options;
  • Career development when few avenues for promotion exist;
  • Strategies for assessing and developing organizational culture; and 
  • Using a values-driven approach to encourage employees to find and pursue purpose in their work.
