WF1129B - Why Culture is Critical to Your Team Retention Strategy

The culture in an organization makes all the difference when attracting and retaining employees. Fierce hiring competition, high attrition rates and a call for work responsibilities that aligns with employees' personal values makes creating an outstanding workplace culture all that more important. In the real-time, connected social world we live in, employee attitudes and feelings about their work culture is disseminated at light speed, which can make or break brands.

Ascendum VP of Innovation and Technology, Mickey Mentzer, will offer real-world advice on how technology leaders can create the type of culture that makes employees feel empowered, comfortable, and motivated while driving productivity. Additionally, he'll reveal the key warning signs that the corporate culture is declining and what to do about it.
