The Talent War: Hiring, Engaging, and Retaining Great Talent
We are in the middle of a talent war – with most of the value of any company tied to human capital. This is even more true of design firms. Today’s knowledge-based businesses have people as their unique selling point. In this session, we will cover critical talent management functions that every leader must heed. This session will arm participants with the knowledge and tools to hire the best talent, upskill and motivate your existing talent for enhanced engagement, and build company loyalty.

Coaching and Mentoring to Strategically Upskill Your Workforce
Today’s competitive workplace demands that leaders evaluate performance. By shifting from the mindset of managing and leading to coaching and mentoring, leaders deepen commitment, retain high-performing individuals and support future leaders in their development process. The new generations entering the workforce want coaching and expect mentoring from their leaders. Being a mentor/coach leader is one of the most effective ways to get more done for the company while building an engaged and enthusiastic workplace.
