Relationships, Talented Leaders and Investment Are the Key

Lincoln, Nebraska ( Thursday Apr 20, 2023 @ 6:00 AM Pacific —

Talent Plus, Inc.® colleagues Jonah Garbin, Research Scientist; and Dr. Scott Whiteford, Director, Leadership Analytics; authors of a recent white paper, “Retention Strategies for the New Ear: Being Know for the People You Keep” will be guests on a webinar moderated by John Henley, Chief Growth Officer, Thursday, April 27, 2 pm. to 3 p.m. (CST).

The breakthrough research and thought leadership highlighted in this white paper, point to the impact developing good relationships with employees can have, the importance of surrounding talented employees with other talented employees (especially leaders) who have complementary strengths and the momentum gained when leaders invest in employees’ professional growth. Garbin and Whiteford know those attending will gain insight into:

  • Why turnover is higher than usual
  • Key ways to keep turnover in check
  • Insight into retention strategies and top talent

“What we have learned through our research may be counterintuitive to some, for example, many employers get into the mindset that if people are unhappy, we should simply pay them more. Our research finds that pay is the worst predictor of engagement,” offer Garbin and Whiteford.

Garbin is a doctoral student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with a degree in Qualitative, Quantitative, and Psychometric Methods, and is an experienced researcher with a demonstrated history of working in the human resources industry.

Whiteford is a leading authority on The Science of Talent ®. His primary analytical focus is utilizing Talent Plus’ Executive Interview to help companies select and coach leaders based on their strengths. Whiteford utilizes a variety of solutions to develop leaders, build effective teams and help grow organizations through a strengths-management philosophy and positive psychology. Talent Plus has a team of research scientists and data scientists at Talent Plus, Inc.
