Mid-Florida SHRM Meeting

TOPIC:             How to Attract, Hire and Retain the Best People

SPEAKER:       Cindy Moran

HRCI Credits:   SHRM and HRCI credits approved

Summary:  The Reality - While many companies believe they have a good hiring process, high turnover and low productivity often say otherwise. Studies have shown that most hiring processes not only miss top performers, but actually eliminate them. The Good News - There is better way to find people who not only have the right skills, but will be happy and productive working in your company. You know these people. They are the ones to seem to do what is required almost automatically and clearly love what they are doing. From sales to customer service to support, these people really are out there and you can find them. The Solution - In this session, your members will learn how high performing companies are using cutting edge behavioral analytics, combined with effective interviewing techniques, to build teams of winners.
You will learn: How to identify the profile of a top performer for your company; How to attract candidates who match your target profile; How to use analytics to improve the speed and accuracy of your interviewing process; How your personal style affects your hiring and management effectiveness; How to retain and motivate your winners once you hire them. The Program - This program will give company leaders step-by-step strategies and tactics that are proven to work in down markets. Each attendee will also receive a free personal assessment so you can understand your personal style.

About the speaker:  Cindy’s 20+ years of experience and expertise in Learning and Development spans a variety of industries, including sales, healthcare, call center, financial, fitness, wholesale supply and non-profit.  Her personal goal is to maximize the potential of the individual and the organization for growth, and she has guided companies both large and small through high growth and organizational change.  Cindy’s education includes a BA in Philosophy/Business from Villanova University and graduate work in Philosophy at Penn State University.  She also has a certificate in Strategic Organizational Leadership, is a certified facilitator for The Leadership Challenge, and has developed a series of interactive teambuilding sessions to promote continuous process improvement. Cindy has experience with a variety of personality profiles for teambuilding events, and understands the need for EEOC compliance for hiring and development tools. From the client side, Cindy knows how to merge company culture with behavioral and workforce analytics, including mission/vision, Core Values and appropriate Competency Models to accelerate growth and skyrocket retention.  She is an expert in the sales process and has developed both outside and inside sales teams to drive results.  Her list of accomplishments includes the development and implementation of quality assurance programs to increase customer satisfaction and succession planning. Cindy has lived in Pennsylvania and Texas, but calls Tampa, FL her home.  She is actively involved in her community through the Chamber of Commerce, fundraising for the American Diabetes Association StepOut Walk, and a Board Member for the Campo Family YMCA.
