Talent Generation: How to Engage Members in the Era of Disruption

Companies are less profitable today than they were in 1965. Job satisfaction has been declining since 1987.  Organizations are losing billions in employee turnover. Global research indicates the top concern among executives is their inability to recruit and retain talent.

What's this have to do with membership? Quite a lot, actually.

In this presentation, based on her latest ASAE-published book, Talent Generation, Sarah Sladek shares the results of her study of the most future-facing organizations in existence today, and serves up a call to action on the important role associations must play in solving the global workforce crisis.

According to Sladek, associations must be capable of not only successfully navigating this era of disruption, but leading it. Associations must aspire to not only serve their membership, but to actively contribute to the greater good of our industries and communities. Her presentation promises to equip you with valuable insights and inspire you to rethink how you do business and respond to the challenges of the world.

  • Learn the traits shared among the most engaging and successful organizations in existence today
  • Understand the thought process that goes into the decision to join, renew, and engage
  • Learn how to build communities, must-have membership, and be a sought-after resource in an era of disruption
