As 2021 presses on, one thing that remains on everyone’s minds is talent. Running a successful business requires having the right people on your team. But what do you do when there isn’t enough talent to fill your open positions? Technology and innovations can only take your business so far without the right team in place. If you’re a business owner, you may be struggling with how to recruit, engage and reward employees – especially as we learn to adapt to a post-pandemic world where remote work environments are more prevalent.

Our upcoming live video event series Automation Talent 101: Culture, Hiring, & Retention will help you tackle your biggest talent concerns. Discover innovative and effective ways to build a stronger culture, develop a winning team, keep employees engaged and more. These engaging hour-long sessions feature culture and talent specialists. The series kicks off on June 23 with a deep dive on culture. The discussion will be led by Clayton & McKervey Industrial Automation leader Tim Finerty. CSIA CEO Jose Rivera will join our panel alongside Heather Haas from ADVISA and Titus Crabb from Vertech. The discussion, involving a human resources expert, a system integrator and leaders in the industrial automation field will focus on why culture is such an important piece of the talent puzzle, and how it can help your business thrive.

The group will focus on ways to build a more intentional culture that goes beyond simply promoting a new core value or adding a buzzworthy work perk. “To achieve true balance, leaders need to dig deeper,” says Heather Haas, President of ADVISA, a leadership development consultancy. Personal accountability, clarity and teamwork all need to be considered. “Over time, a supportive culture of balance will reduce costly employee turnover and absenteeism, improve your employer brand so you can compete for top talent, and unlock innovation and creativity,” she says. Future sessions will focus on talent acquisition and retention. Finding effective ways to recruit new talent to your organization and keep employees engaged is a growing challenge for this sector and has increased in complexity during the pandemic. This program is designed to guide closely held automation businesses through your toughest talent issues and provide new strategies for retaining, engaging, and rewarding your team.
