Talent Imperative Session – NHRA LA

July 18 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm PST

71% of organizations identify a labor and skills deficit as posing the greatest disruption in 2022. As organizations reshape their benefits and incentives in response – what approaches work best and for whom?

In this session, i4cp Senior Research Analyst, Katheryn Brekken, Ph.D., will share key findings from the new i4cp study, The Talent Imperative, conducted in collaboration with Fortune this spring. They found that:

1· More flexibility equals greater retention

 Leading organizations are emphasizing culture, not compensation

 High-performance organizations are using incentives and benefits with surgical precision, whereas lower performers are working with meat cleavers
