As often happens within older organizations, those things that are ‘familiar’ maintain just enough momentum to persist long past their point of usefulness. Such is the case at Freddie Mac where traditional employee surveys went unchanged for decades. Then one day, it decided to try something new. Introducing employee voice allowed leaders and teams to quickly see that, through actionable dialogue, they could move faster, energize employees and ‘shape the future’.

2:00 pm - 2:30 pm Securing Retention by Restructuring Current Resources

Sheri Harper - Chief People Officer, Frisch's Restaurants, Inc.
In a recent report from the Center of American Progress, turnover can cost organizations anywhere from 16% to 213% of the lost employee’s salary. Staggeringly, millennial turnover costs the U.S. 30.5 billion dollars annually. 
Rehabilitating this retention crisis often lays predominately on the CHROs shoulders. But like many things in business, solutions may commonly lie within the resources you already have. 

Through meaningful case studies from real life roll outs of successful initiatives such as The Gift of Time and Daily Pay, Sheri will provide examples of restructuring benefits & compensation packages to fulfil the needs of a more mindful and balanced workforce.
