Winning the Talent Game

WNG Chairman's Forum

Wednesday, May 17, 2017
4:00 PM - 6:15 PM

Please join the Washington Network Group for our next WNG Chairman's Forum with Jennifer Ives of 3Pillar Global and Shaara Roman of The Silverene Group, who will discuss with us Winning the Talent Game.

About this Session

"Talent is what will distinguish an organization from the competition." 2017 PwC CEO Survey.

Are you concerned about "Winning the Talent Game?" You aren’t alone. Multiple surveys of CEOs, including those by PwC, KPMG and Deloitte, all cite talent and culture as a priority for CEOs and other leaders. 56% of the CEOs in Deloitte’s 2016 study report that their companies are not ready for the leadership needs. In KPMG's 2015 Global CEO outlook survey, CEOs cite hiring and retaining the right talent a priority.

If you are a CEO, founder, owner, C-suite executive, or people leader you won't want to miss this opportunity to engage! Join our two panelists, Jennifer Ives and Shaara Roman, to hear about the latest research and trends to help you shape your talent strategy to appeal to a multi-generational workforce, including the latest GenZ's. Jennifer and Shaara will share strategies and client insights on three critical areas: onboarding, performance management and leadership pipeline.
