Attracting and Retaining Top Talent Through Learning, Coaching, and Development

WATCH: 2018 Learning & Leadership Development Conference highlights

Finding new talent and keeping key talent is the most critical challenge organizations struggle with as worker and skill-based shortages prevail across the nation.  Development, learning, and coaching are normally thought of as a “bonus” but in today’s environment it’s not only expected, it’s demanded, especially from new gen workers who are quickly disenchanted without access to pathways to growth and new skills.  Research overwhelmingly tells us that when skill and leadership development are integrated into an organizational culture it becomes the lynchpin to employee retention, plus it attracts the talent you want while developing the skills you need in-house.

A whopping 94% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers, according to LinkedIn’s 2018 Workforce Learning Report

Poorly trained managers are the most common obstacle to learning and the most common reason for turnover.  Managers who don’t connect well with their team or don’t allow time for development drastically increase the risk of talent flight – a loss that usually goes to competitive organizations.

According to HCI’s Talent Pulse Research, 83% of high-performing organizations are prioritizing training and development to prevent regrettable turnover

Join the HCI Learning & Leadership Development event and get the tools and strategies you’ll need to identify, develop, and coach leaders to better engage and retain their own teams.  We’ll demonstrate how retention is the hard-won outcome of engaging and challenging talent.
