Confused about the economic recovery and what it means for you and your organization? So are we! For the past few years, the HR Committee has presented an annual event focused on “networking”. This year’s event continues the trend … with a twist:

TechAmerica provides the moderator; YOU will be the panelists!

Dr. Jeff Johnson, PHD, SPHR Jeff Johnson, PhD., is a currently a Senior Talent Management Consultant with Right Management. He has been consulting with organizations for over 10 years, working with managers and executives in various industries and at different levels. Jeff helps organizations build key leadership competencies, enhance strategic talent management acumen, and make optimal talent movement decisions. Jeff successfully built a private practice focused on leadership assessment, organizational development, and strategic talent management and holds an MS in Organizational Development and PhD in Industrial & Organizational Psychology from PSU.

Dr. Johnson will start the session with some thought provoking questions and ideas:

  • Preparing for the recovery - It’s coming –are you prepared?
  • Strategic talent acquisition as an increasingly competitive advantage
  • How to get employees motivated to become fully engaged in their jobs
  • Capitalizing employee production while promoting innovation
  • Loyalty – how to maximize employee commitment to your organization
  • Compensation: How to leverage intrinsic motivation when cash is not available
  • Building leadership throughout an organization – why it is more important than ever?

Before the event you will be asked to provide your ranked interest in the Recover, Retool, Retain subjects. We will seat the event based upon interests. Don’t worry – you won’t miss a thing! After half an hour of table discussion with your peers, each table will report out on the highlights of their discussion.

Cost: $35 Tech America members, $35 SAO and OEN Industry members, $55 nonmember technology companies, and $95 other nonmembers
