2:00 - 3:15  Give Your Employees C.R.A.P. - the Success Formula for Building Employee Loyalty
Jeff Kortes, Human Asset Management LLC
Have you ever wondered why some bosses and organizations have people who are incredibly loyal to them and who will do anything for them while others have a revolving door of employee turnover? Those bosses and organizations that people want to follow, they give their employees lots of C.R.A.P.!  (Caring, Respect, Appreciation and Praise). Jeff provides a “headhunter’s” insight into why some employees are loyal and others work only to get a paycheck. Through real-life stories and interactive participation, Jeff has created a program which helps participants understand how to demonstrate Caring, Respect, Appreciation, and Praise, so that they can systematically build employee loyalty in their organization.
