10:25 am - 11:05 am Realising Effective Retention Strategies to Enhance Employee Engagement

Anu Sharma - Workforce Planning Manager AMP
With widening talent gaps and changing employee demographics organisations need to address critical areas in their workforce plans.

  • Understanding how HR management can create targeted programs to attempt to retain employees and prepare for expected departures by enhancing their training and recruitment campaigns
  • Implementing strategies to encourage your HR team about employee motivation, retention strategies and benchmarking and to effectively evaluate the results to maximise growth
  • How to enable a flexible and agile workforce that retains current talent and optimise growth for future talent in order to achieve your organisations strategic priorities
