Event Title: Recruiting Talent in a Competitive Market   

Presenter: Gerry Hoeffner 

Program Description: 

The unemployment rate has dropped below 5% in Palm Beach County.  The competitive market for talent has returned.  Are you prepared for the day when you just can’t find anyone with the skills you need to fill your positions?  What do you do if they are leaving faster than you can replace them?  

After years of our employees not being able to find positions in the rather sparse economy, your most talented employees will once again have choices.  Your turnover rates are beginning to rise.  Employees who have been waiting for an opportunity for a change will soon find it easier to leave.   How will you replace them?  Where will the talent come from?  Do you have a plan?

In this fun and entertaining program, you will discover:

  • The economics causing rising turnover rates
  • The financial impact of losing a talented employee
  • How do you market your organization as an employer of choice
  • The difference between a “Recruitment Plan” and an “Attraction Plan”
  • How do you get employers to support your efforts to create a better place to work


The three learning points in this program are:

  • How is your organization and your recruitment efforts affected by the economy?
  • How do you build a recruitment effort that attracts employees?
  • How to gain support from your leadership team for recruitment in a competitive market? 

Pre-Dinner Workshop – Stress Less: New Ways to Replenish and Relax Your Mind

Presented by: Jennifer Estrada

  • Are you stressed from the multitasking required to be a good parent, spouse, employee, supervisor, or friend?
  • Do you feel like you are running on empty most of the time?
  • Can’t figure out how to replenish when you have no “me” time?
  • What are the hurdles standing in your way?

Stress can come from many sources: work, relationships, children, financial, social. Many of us find ourselves under a pile of stress before we even think of trying to manage it. Often we are so focused on our daily activities, our physical health, eating right, our tangible needs and the needs of others that we forget to focus on our emotional well-being. This is just as important for a healthy existence. Even if we know we should focus on our emotional fitness, we often don’t know how to.  It’s important to recognize signs of stress in the workplace, develop strategies to implement within the organization, and best practices or characteristics of organizations who are known for providing stress outlets.

In this presentation, you will learn to:

  • Recognize how your internal dialogue affects your mindset when interacting with employees and senior leaders. 
  • Identify how to build on the resources you already have within to better interact with employees. 
  • Find your inner strength to replenish yourself mentally to face whatever hurdles in your life brings you in as an HR professional. 
  • Use visualization to tap into your relaxation zone as well as face challenging situations. 
  • Acquire specific tools you can use immediately to cope effectively

Both programs have been submitted for HRCI and SHRM recertification credits. 

Open to members and guests.
Location: Embassy Suites-West Palm Beach
