Mark Tyler will be presenting "The Business Case for Being a Family Friendly Employer & Why it Matters"
Mark will discuss our current situation and share some demographic data from Wisconsin and from our neighborhood. This will set the stage for the workforce challenges that we will face as employers in the coming years. The real question for employers is this: How will you recruit and retain great Team Members when they have more opportunities than ever before. This new generation thinks differently, (where have we heard that before? I think they said this about us too.) Are you prepared? Do you understand what they are even looking for?
One thing is for certain, the workplace is changing. Family Friendly Workplaces works to help companies navigate what this means and helps companies get recognition for their Family Friendly policies and practices. Being differentiated from that rest of the competing employers will be key to attracting and retaining great Team Members.
Come and learn how Family Friendly Workplaces can help you and at the same time build resources for community and family supporting nonprofits.
