Business Smarts – PLEASE STAY – Retaining Employees @ Shenandoah Valley SBDC
May 13 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am

PLEASE STAY!
Sign companies would find a market by adding “Please Stay” on the back of the “Help Wanted” signs they print. The “Please Stay” would look inward as a reminder to “woo” your current team regularly. Although employee retention has always been a top priority, today’s tight job market demands an understanding of the challenges faced and creative/personal solutions to encourage your team to stay when so many options abound.

Our Presenter: John Barlow is committed to unleashing the potential in the Shenandoah Valley through a strong and well-equipped workforce. Through his role at Blue Ridge Community College’s Workforce and Continuing Education brings a background of over 30 years in business sales, leadership, education administration and teaching to assist the business community in reaching that goal. As Corporate Sales Manager, John’s focus is customized corporate training built to meet your needs.
