July 12, 2023: ASA Bonus Webinar: Attracting and Retaining Top Talent

Presenter: Rick White, President & Coach, 180BIZ

Couple the lowest unemployment numbers we’ve seen in almost 20 years with the aging of the existing technician pool, and you end up chasing potential hires to fill your slots. Chasing people doesn’t work, and placing help wanted ads doesn’t work anymore either. Today you need to excel at the 3 Cs — Compensation, Culture, and Conditions — to attract great people to your business and keep them there.

In this fast-paced webinar, we’re going to show you:

  • The different compensation ideas that are attracting top talent
  • What the word “culture” really means and how you can use it to keep your best people with you for years to come
  • How to create the conditions that set you apart and make you the easy choice
  • And what’s holding you back from making these changes and what to do about it

You’ll leave this webinar with the tools you need to hire and keep the best.
