SAVANNAH, GA – November 1, 2022 – Georgia Tech Savannah is slated to host the next event in its Learners & Leaders series from 8 – 9:30 a.m., with breakfast and networking commencing at 7:30 a.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022. The seminar, Becoming an Employer of Choice – Recruiting and Retaining Employees, is a hybrid event. Participants can attend in-person at the Georgia Tech Savannah campus, 210 Technology Circle, or join virtually.

The workforce landscape has evolved and shifted significantly in the last couple of years. Following the Great Resignation and subsequent hiring crisis, job hopping seems to have swelled even further. In a February 2022, LinkedIn study of more than 20,000 US workers, 25% of Gen Zers and 23% of millennials said they hoped or planned to leave their current employers within the next six months.

HR departments and employers are charged with the task of becoming an in-demand employer and executing sophisticated recruitment and retention strategies to get employees in the door and keep them there. An expert panel will discuss the need for a detailed HR infrastructure that any size organization should have and next on to how best to recruit employees and what strategies have worked to retain them, including valuing individual performance.

The expert lineup of panelists includes:

  • Jeff Grant, Human Resources Director, City of Savannah
  • Suzanne Kirk, President & Executive HR Consultant, Employee Development Strategies, Inc.
  • Elliot Price, Augusta Regional Manager, Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership at Georgia Tech
