Re-Recruiting Your Top Performers
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. | $27 for Chamber Members | $40 for Non-Members | Ramada Plaza & Suites
Presenters: Barb Belcher, vice president of human resources, YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties; Dawn Lahlum, president, Park Co. Realtors; Amber Unser, director of HR for Tecton and Integrity; Rhonda Young, HR manager, Hornbacher’s

We all know the importance of recruiting talented new employees to fill open positions in our organizations. But shouldn’t top-performing current employees get equal attention? Maybe it’s time your organization seriously considers a “re-recruitment” strategy. This is more than a focus on workplace culture or an occasional employee survey; it is a strategic process that keeps your best employees engaged and challenged so they stay at your organization.

At this session, we will hear from a panel of area employers that already have effective re-recruitment practices and policies in place. We’ll learn what makes each of their strategies work, and help you identify an action plan that will succeed in your business.

Winning with Interns
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. | $27 for Chamber Members | $40 for Non-Members | Hilton Garden Inn Fargo, 4351 17th Ave S
Presenters will be local experts from our local colleges

Has your company considered hiring interns but you don’t know where to start? Have you used interns, but the experience was less than ideal? Do you have a successful internship program and would like to hear what other companies are doing?

Current statistics indicate that nearly 75% of internships result in an offer for a full-time permanent position. Increasing the number of successful internships in the region is likely to have a positive impact on the number of local college and university students staying in the area after graduation.

For employers looking for the best college-educated employees, an internship program may be the best way to build a pipeline of talented, young professionals. Businesses will be able to tap into the top creative talent with cutting-edge skills. Companies that develop a process to effectively manage interns also get more value from their program and do a better job of converting interns into full-time employees.
