Briefing: Attracting Top Talent in A Pool of Competitors
Presenter: Peylina Chu, Senior Consultant, Antea Group
Top talent is intrinsically and extrinsically attracted to rewarding companies where they feel nicely compensated, but also comfortable, safe, and protected by their company. By having a strong environment, health, and safety (EHS) culture that is sensitive to employee desires, top talent will feel comfortable and incentivized by what they witness in your work environment. Not only does your workplace need to be free of distractions and EHS concerns, but a culture of EHS must be in place that’s supported by the company at all levels, from the CEO down. Hear recent survey insights on the importance of EHS to tech employees and tips on how companies can identify and address top EHS concerns to retain talent in their workforce.
