2:30 to 3:45 pmYour Greatest Asset - How to Attract, Retain and Motivate Your EmployeesWorkshop with Nancy DunkWe are in a tough labour market, where the needs and wants of employees have significantly changed. Employees don’t just want the job, they also want to know, “what’s in it for me?” As a result, many employers are seeing high turnover rates with poor job satisfaction. You’ve spent money in hiring this employee…why can’t you keep them? Or tougher yet, why can’t you find them? In this workshop, participants will explore ideas on how to attract, retain and motivate employees. If you can’t find the ‘best’ employees, then we create them! Come join the dialogue at this evolutionary session!Nancy DunkNancy Dunk is an entrepreneur and the president and owner of Dunk and Associates/Systems 24-7. For many years, Nancy worked in the private sector where she focused on occupational health and safety. In 1999, Nancy came to the realization that the only way to get health and safety advice came at a high cost through private consultants. Nancy recognized the need for both a trusted source of professionals and an online compliance management system. From this idea, Systems 24-7 was born. Nancy is passionate about advocating for the employer and helping them create healthy workplaces. Her goal is to give exceptional support, provide expert advice and guidance, and develop the necessary tools to make managing programs easy and affordable for employers.
