MEMBER ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
Shelby County Associated Industries is excited to announce a new training and development opportunity. Mark your calendar for June 16 at the Shelby County Cooperative Extension office. We are bringing workforce thought leader and keynote speaker Cara Silletto, to address WORKFORCE RETENTION. We’ve seen your now hiring ads, we’ve heard your short staffed complaints, we feel your stress! And we truly believe this intensive one-day training session for owners, executives, directors, managers, and HR leaders will make an immediate difference. If you can only spare one day all year, make this it. If you can’t spare this day, find a way to do it any how. Register online: https://airtable.com/shrDh1m4c77GshEhK or contact charlie@scidf.com.
 
Shelby County Associated Industries has deeply discounted the cost to attend, only $100 per participant. 
 
A little bit about our speaker:
Cara works with organizations to reduce unnecessary employee turnover by bridging generational gaps and making managers more effective in their roles. Workforce Magazine in Chicago named Cara a “Game Changer” and Recruiter.com listed her in their “Top 10 Company Culture Experts to Watch.” She is the author of the book, "Staying Power: Why Your Employees Leave & How to Keep Them Longer," and Louisville Business First named her one of their 2018 Forty Under 40.
