Recruit and Retain Executive Level Talent

Blog - How To Retain Executive Talent

A rapidly growing national organization with a mission to foster executive level relationships for women across sectors in business and industry, announces a new virtual event. This event will feature Human Resource executives Erica Hahn, Senior Talent Acquisition Consultant at LexisNexis/Knowable; Joe Kelly, Senior Vice President of Talent, Interpublic Group; and Jennifer Greenwald, Senior Vice President of People at Playboy Enterprises, as they address competitive challenges in recruiting senior management, retaining top employees and more.

“With the dearth of women in C-level and Board positions, we want to explore what it takes to hire and keep executive talent,” said Dianne Gubin, President of Amplify Professional Services Inc., an executive search and IT consulting firm, and Co-CEO of C-Sweet. “We want to discuss what it takes for women to get hired, promoted and stay in executive level positions at Fortune 1000, Middle Market and fast growth companies.”

“With the help of our featured speakers, we hope to dig deep into the issues surrounding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace,” said Beth Hilbing, Senior Program Manager and Principal IT Business Partner at Boeing, as well as Co-CEO of C-Sweet. “We are thrilled to offer a space for women to grow and learn from like-minded professionals.”
