We’ve all heard of the skills gap. We’ve all heard of the knowledge gap; but what about the Attraction & Retention Gap? HR practitioners everywhere are struggling to keep their organizations staffed with – you guessed it – Millennials. In February, 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports 51% of Millennials plan to leave their company’s in the next 2 years. Another article around the same time notes 52% of Millennials view the concept of employee loyalty as “over rated”. And on it goes, article after article.

What’s an HR professional to do?

This session takes a look at what some of the strategies for closing the Attraction & Retention Gap might look like and how these strategies might just work for you. Join us and see for yourself.


At the end of this session, attendees will have:

·         a better insight into the successful attraction and retention of Millennials,

·         tips and tools to improve attraction and retention strategies,

·         a preview of what’s to come…the Post Millennials


Judith Tavano, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, founder of TRAINIQUE, LLC and long-time educator at the University of Arkansas, has been studying the generations in the workplace for the past two decades. She has watched the Millennials rise up and the Boomers begin to move on. She has cautioned employers to not overlook their Gen Xers who are now, themselves, past their mid-lives and mid-careers, and she is watching with awe as the Post Millennials find their voice and enter the workplace. Judith calls herself a generational anthropologist; someone who studies the people who make up the generations. As HR professionals, the more we know about the people serve, the better equipped we will be to close the attraction and retention gap.
