Organizational Fit and Retention – How to get the right people and get them to stay!

April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

IEEE-USA Free Livestream Webinar The last few years have been traumatic for most employees. From mass layoffs to having to quickly pivot from office work to “home” work, the earth has shifted under the feet of many American (and international) workers. For many, this has resulted in much soul-searching about what is important both in one’s career and in life itself. Suddenly, instead of smoothly moving to the next stage in one’s career, many people find themselves considering whether they even want a career – or whether they want a career in a different company. Thus, organizational fit has come into focus. This area has been studied for years in Industrial Psychology circles but it is becoming clear that the topic is not just for the classroom – “Person-Org Fit” (POF) really matters in the real world. And when we talk about POF, we quickly get to values, because values of both individuals and organizations determine POF. This talk will discuss how individual values meet opportunities, how one considers POF consciously and unconsciously, and how POF affects work satisfaction and retention. We will discuss ways to measure values and use those in a practical way to create selection systems and retain key employees. We’ll also talk about ways to find fit between individuals and organizations to create win-win solutions. Finally, participants will get a chance to take a Values test based on over a century of research, and get a free report. Come and start the journey toward finding “fit” by understanding your own values!
