People do business with people they like … and trust. That's why you want your best employees to stay on board.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number one reason people leave their jobs is that they “don't feel appreciated.” Numerous other studies have polled employees and found that recognition and “feeling valued” often rank above pay.

 Participants in this workshop will learn:

  • Simple tools and techniques for motivating employees stay with you as a purpose-driven business.  
  • How to shape your employee relations with easy, budget-friendly practices.
  • Ways to project your business to customers as a “provider of choice” and to employees as an “employer of choice.”
