Key Takeaways / Agenda

12:30 PM – 1:00 PM | Welcome and Registration

1:00 PM- 2:00 PM | The Power of Purpose – A Case Study From One of the Best Places to Work
Presented by John McHugh, Director of Corporate Communications, Kwik Trip

 

With a turnover rate 6x lower than their industry average, there is no doubt the folks at Kwik Star have developed a recipe for success when it comes to employee engagement. To share some of the secrets behind their success, we have invited John McHugh, director of corporate communications, leadership development and training at Kwik Star to present on the Power of Purpose in the workplace and the profound effect it has had for their 34,000+ employees in over 800 stores.

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM | The Critical Role of Compensation in the Recruitment Process  
Presented by Matt Shefchik, Assistant Vice President, Carlson Dettmann Consulting

 

When discussing compensation with candidates its more than just the final dollar amount offered, but being able to best position their total rewards being offered to attract that top talent. Today’s employees value pay transparency and pay equity within the recruitment process. In this hour, participants will learn the importance of pay transparency, how to align pay expectations with the candidates, and how to balance the candidates experience with internal equity.

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM | Follow the Leaders: What High Performing Employers

Are Doing to Curb Costs & Boost Employee Value
Presented by Taylor Orton, Vice President, Benefits – Cottingham & Butler

 

In an old social science theory known as the “Diffusion of Innovation Theory”, there are five types of adopters in the world of innovation, including: Innovators, Early Adopters, Early Majority, Late Majority, and Laggards. While there are the five categories, the distribution in each is not equivalent, as only about 16% of organizations are truly considered Innovators (2.5%) or Early Adopters (13.5%). This 16% is often known as the market leader in their respective field, as most competitors often lag behind adoption and copy ideas well after they are proven a success. While it is understandable that not every organization has the risk tolerance levels required to be a true innovator, finding ways to expedite that knowledge transfer is imperative for the remaining 84% of employers to have any competitive advantage in the market. In this session, participants will learn about the leading edge strategies being used by innovative employers to have a competitive edge in the Great Resignation.

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM | Optional Hors D’oeuvres and Happy Hour
