Elevating Project Performance - Retaining Top Talent for Long-Term Success

Maintaining high levels of employee engagement and retention is crucial for the success of any project team. In today's post-pandemic workforce, it's essential for Owners to provide learning, training, and development opportunities to their teams in order to retain top talent and stay competitive.

This webinar will delve into strategies that Owners can use to elevate their teams and improve project outcomes. Topics will include:

  • Strengthening employee engagement and alignment
  • Providing career development opportunities such as mentoring or career planning
  • Recruiting, developing, and retaining top talent to fill the looming gap in the workforce

Join us as we discuss real challenges faced by front-line Owners and develop a working set of actions to successfully retain top talent and enhance project performance. Remember, there are no universal solutions or easy answers, but by discussing and comparing notes with others, we can lean on the "village" to find the best path forward.
