Feeding Frenzy: Winning the War for Top Talent

Something’s in the water … and it’s creating a feeding frenzy among your top talent.


Presenters: Jason Bodin and  Braeden Fair, Paycom

Original program date: July 2017 (program no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

Sharks are circling the nationwide labor force and preying on your best workers. In addition, new workforce data from the recent U.S. jobs report shows that an increased number of people are entering the workforce, and Americans are quitting their jobs at a rate not seen since 2009. These trends signal a market shift that can hinder employers’ ability to attract and retain great employees.

In this program, Jason Bodin and Braeden Fair from Paycom will discuss:
  • How labor market growth can make finding and keeping top talent more difficult.
  • Powerful strategies to help you take control and build the workforce you need.
  • The role employee engagement should play in employee retention.
  • The most important needs of prime-age workers (those ages 25 to 54).
  • How a successful onboarding strategy can help retain your top talent.
  • The role technology plays in making it happen.
Learn how to navigate the ocean of labor market changes, while recruiting the talent your business needs. Don’t let your top talent fall prey to the feeding frenzy.
