“Business leaders and hiring professionals who study labor market forecasts understand that the way employers have traditionally approached talent attraction, development, and retention has to change,” Nancy Spivey, VP of Talent Strategies, said. “The Total Talent Transformation idea is to approach each hire individually, understanding that what I might desire from my employer in terms of compensation, benefits, perks, job title and responsibility will likely vary from another person hired. This year’s Symposium will explore the concept of developing an employee-centered talent attraction, engagement, and retention plan for each hire.”

The Talent Strategies Symposium is ideal for small business owners, operations and human resources professionals and C-suite leaders from all types of organizations. The Talent Strategies Symposium is approved for SHRM Continuing Education Credits.
