Discussion topic:

Heading into the Pandemic, the labor market was tightening. Unemployment was at record lows, making finding and retaining great staff increasingly difficult. COVID brought another level of uncertainty, further complicating the issue. Join us for a discussion to share strategies and ideas that will allow for you to once again view staff as your biggest asset, not something that keeps you up at night. We’ll be discussing topics such as:

  • Strategies for hiring in a tight market
  • Dealing with short staffing in the office
  • Benefit packages
  • Creating a culture in the office that people want to be a part of

PECAA founder Dr. Lance Anderson will be joining us and will also share the latest on the HEA + PECAA merger.
