[P.O.W.E.R. Plug Podcast] How to Attract, Engage + Retain Talent

Steve Jobs wisely said, “A small company depends on great people much more than a big company does.” Most small business owners are aware that having the best employees is an essential element of growing and maintaining their business. But knowing you need creative, loyal, and hardworking people is one thing, attracting them is another.

Just like you strategically market and deliver your services, the benefits you offer are a significant part of attracting and retaining talented people. Maybe it’s time to consider the current trends in Human Resource benefits that could make the difference between a great candidate choosing your company over another opportunity? Let’s look at some benefits that offer employees more than a paycheck.

In this episode of the P.O.W.E.R. Plug podcast, I speak with with Fidelity’s Human Resource Director, Todd Schexnayder. Todd has over 35 years of Human Resource Management experience. After one Human Relations and Organizational Theory course changed his life, he went on to earn his Master’s from Southern Mississippi and has a Society of HR Management Certificate from Harvard University.
