Presentation:
The external factors businesses face today are requiring organizations to change and adapt. These factors include changing economic and political conditions, the digital revolution, an augmented workforce and changing talent demands as there are now five generations in the workforce. For your business to succeed, you’ll need to outperform the competition in three key areas of talent:

- Talent Acquisition: attracting and recruiting talent into your organization
- Talent Management: accurately measuring performance in your organization
- Talent Activation: coaching and engaging your talent to reach outstanding performance

When successfully executed, here are the results:
- 21% greater productivity
- 22% greater profitability
- 10% greater customer satisfaction
- 25% less turnover
- 48% fewer safety incidents

In this presentation, Ben and Dave will discuss all three areas, but focus on talent activation. How do you get more people in your organization to perform at their highest level? What impact does an improved talent strategy have on employee retention?

Speakers’ Bios:
Ben Ernst and David Piatt are District Managers for ADP. For the last 6 years they each have worked with organizations across the state of Indiana to improve process efficiencies around payroll, benefits, and HR and helped develop and implement strategies around talent management.

Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

READING

The objective of our meetings is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers, share job leads and develop networking opportunities.

Each attendee will get a chance to deliver their two-minute elevator speech, share recent successes and failures, present their networking requests, discuss their job search questions and any concerns they may be struggling with, and apprise the group of any new searches, requests, etc. that they have become aware of.

Please bring at least twenty-five copies of your “one pager”. This should provide your contact information at the top, followed by a brief overview of your background, and finally your target company list and a list of people you would like to meet. They should be handed out to the attendees just before you make your presentation, thus helping them to provide you with targeted assistance and advice.

Please have copies of your resume available to handout to those interested parties who may want to learn more about you or pass it on to individuals they think may be interested in talking to you. Also, bring a nametag to wear and a “name” tent card to place on the table in front of you.

Attire is business casual.

Members of BENG and FEI are also invited to attend.
