Preparing for Remobilization: Key Steps that HR and Global Mobility Teams Can Do Now to be Ready for the Rebound 
For most companies, there is a pipeline of employees and recruits who are on hold, waiting for remobilization to open up. Business partners, recruiters, global mobility teams and HR can manage expectations and take steps to prepare for the wave of relocations, international assignments and transfers on hold due to COVID-19. This Smart Stage session will set you up for the important conversations and activities that you can take to be ready when remobilization happens. 
Presenter: Lisa Johnson, Global Practice Leader, Crown World Mobility 

How to Predict and Protect Against Rising Employee Turnover 
It’s no secret that the cost of employee turnover is a big factor driving many HR initiatives, yet most turnover estimates are based on past exit activity. With a recent Robert Half International survey suggesting that 42% of professionals planned to look for a job last year, HR teams need another way to predict and protect. Join us as we explore how data, technology and pre-employment verification is helping HR leaders and talent departments better identify candidates with staying power while lowering turnover costs. In this session you will: 

  • See industry trends and their financial impact to retention. 
  • Learn how to identify and quickly get to a more turnover-proof candidate pool. 
  • Understand the metrics that matter by stepping through a case study that demonstrates the relationship between pre-employment verification, increased retention and reduced cost. 

Presenter: Adrien Borger, Lead Solutions Engineer, Talent Solutions, Equifax 

Three Ways Technology Can Help Engage & Retain Your Remote Workforce 
Most employers already engage technology for employee communication and collaboration. However, in the age of COVID-19, organizations are worried about production and the unknown. How can workplaces maintain a positive culture when business happens almost exclusively outside of their four walls? How can managers ensure employees are staying engaged by their work? How can employees continue to receive needed information and resources? Technology allows us to continue “business as usual,” even when we are physically distant. This session will explore three ways businesses can leverage specific technologies to implement today to engage and retain their remote (or partially remote) workforce.
