Attracting and retaining top talent isn’t easy. Competition is fierce, unemployment hasn’t been this low since the second world war, and perks and benefits from other companies can be tough to match. What if we realized we weren’t competing against other companies, and that if we optimized our culture rather than compared to others, that we could win the talent war? At InnovateWork on November 26th, you’ll learn key ways to optimize culture and build something bigger than teams; community.

Takeaways include:

* How to optimize culture
* What stories to tell to attract the next generation of talent
* How to improve the job description
* Increase belonging amongst teams

7:25pm - 8:05pm - "The Debate" Be it resolved that financial compensation is the best lever to motivate people at work.

8:05pm - 8:30pm - Close & Networking
