The Alliance of Women in Workers’ Compensation is proud to bring the WCI conference attendees and our followers an empowering and inspirational talent workshop for leaders: Cultivating A Strong Corporate Culture and Talent Management During the Great Resignation.


8:20 – 9:20 am Cultivating A Strong Corporate Culture Panel with Industry Executive Leadership

The culture of a company has remarkable impact on talent attraction and retention and business performance. Developing a talent strategy that is a magnet to purpose and performance is an imperative for businesses. In a time when talent attraction and retention is a top priority, employers must do much more than bringing employees through the door. Our first panel session will provide insights into workforce talent trends across the U.S. and programs people leaders are exploring with executive management. Successful CEO panelists in our industry will share how they are targeting investments designed to help employees better perform their work and improve engagement and work satisfaction. With hybrid work all the rage, how do leaders manage work from home and ensure you have an engaged, productive workforce? In today’s labor market many times we hear salaries are increasing. How do companies balance new hire pay with existing salaries for similar positions? We all strive to have a thriving company culture and this panel offers you a high-level thinking session to gain insights, actions, and solutions for success.

In addition to strong onboarding programs, what solutions are deployed to develop career paths and avoid people leaving our industry? This session will provide tangible advice for the audience to take back to their teams and companies - true tips, actions, and opportunities to improve getting talent through the door, onboarding, and engaging for the long term - as we all strive to keep workers’ compensation industry.
