Many organizations have become proficient at recruiting top women, but too few have managed to keep them long enough to have them contribute as much as possible to the firm. With talent shortages looming over the next decade, companies must attract and retain the large number of professional women who are otherwise forced off the career highway. Moreover, a new study reveals that U.S. companies face a troubling brain drain: Fifty-two percent of female scientists, engineers, and technologists abandon their chosen professions. If companies understand why women drop out, however, they can create targeted interventions and head off a talent shortage.
In this briefing on best practice, attendees can learn how to: better understand what professional women want and need in order to stay in your organization; quantify the return on investment in programs that go beyond telecommuting, flex-time, and job sharing--and help retain women; and understand firms across a wide range of industries have created win-win initiatives to ensure they have the women who can give them a competitive edge. This program brings one of the world's foremost management and leadership experts right to your facility with practical insights you'll be able to put to use right away.
