    Employee Retention and Engagement 

    As unemployment continues to see record low numbers and voluntary terminations continue to soar (i.e., "The Great Resignation"), employers have one question on their mind....How do we retain our talent and keep them engaged? Secondly, how do we prevent unexpected resignations?

    Some of the topics Danielle will cover are:

    • Why do employees leave?
    • What's the difference between retention elements and engagement elements?
    • You've issued an employee satisfaction survey... NOW WHAT?
    •  Learn about creative, sustainable, and cost-effective ways to engage and retain your employees
    •  Engage employees while keeping your budget neutral or low cost.


    PRESENTER:  Our Presenter will be Danielle Martinez.  Danielle is a part of the Executive Leadership Team, holding a position as a Senior HR Director of Solidia Technologies.  Outside of work, she holds two board positions as s Diversity and inclusion Chari for HRMA of Princeton and Diversity and Inclusion Director fo the Garden State Council – SHRM.

    Danielle also hosts a podcast “The Corporate Climb Show” , which discusses the challenges around climbing the corporate ladder as a minority in modern-day America.
