Reward and Retention – What Can HR Do? June 2013 Meeting of JSAHR

Posted on May 24, 2013 By

In the next ten years it will become increasingly harder for organizations to satisfactorily staff to meet the demands of the market. Money will only go so far in attracting and retaining talented staff. But there are a number of other steps we can take to keep our best employees, and most of them don’t cost a cent.

Ron Katz, an HR consultant and adjunct instructor at the Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations, will outline proven techniques to reward and retain valued staff, five low and no-cost practices that can stem turnover and reward top performers on Thursday, June 13, 2013, at the monthly meeting of The Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources (JSAHR), a Silver Excel award winner of SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management), 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., Jumping Brook Country Club, 210 Jumping Brook Road, Neptune, N.J.

The registration fee, including a full buffet breakfast, is $30.00 for JSAHR members; $40.00 for nonmembers; $25.00 for those in-transition, and $10.00 for full-time students. This program is pending HRCI credits. To register, call Kathi Evans, JSAHR administrator, at 732-270-5204 email
