You will learn how you can build an effective and flexible workplace to ensure you are finding and keeping your top talent. 

Getting your organization’s employee value proposition right is key to having a competitive advantage in recruiting, retaining and engaging talent. But how do you know what employees want? This session will reveal important findings from the 2016 National Study of the Changing Workforce (NSCW), the largest ongoing study of a national representative sample of U.S. employees, including the recently released SHRM Effective Workplace Index, an evidence-based seven-component index of working conditions that benefit employees and employers alike. The seven components are 1) job challenge and learning opportunities; 2) supervisor support for job success; 3) autonomy; 4) culture of respect, trust and belonging; 5) work/life fit; 6) satisfaction with wages, benefits and opportunities to advance; and 7) co-worker support for job success. NSCW findings reveal that effective and flexible workplaces support strong retention, engagement and other critical people outcomes including improved health, among others. This session will highlight:

•          What employees want from current and prospective employers.

•          How employers are responding to the changing workforce and employee needs.

•          The seven components of an effective workplace and how to create an effective and flexible workplace.
