Le Moyne College Hosts Session on Employee Retention in the Not-for-Profit World

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Events of the past months notwithstanding, statistics show there will be a shortage of talent in the coming years numbering in the millions.  How will not for profit organizations compete for the best talent at a time when corporate organizations are seeking those very same people?  And how will those same organizations energize and enable their people who may feel “trapped” during this economic downturn?


Renée Downey-Hart, Ph.D., will address these issues in a session on Monday, April 27, at 2:30 p.m. in the Curtin Special Events Room, located in the Campus Center. The session is titled “Employee Retention in the Not-for-Profit World: Crafting the User Friendly Workplace.”


In this session, participants will explore the results of a CNY survey of leaders and employees about what motivates them, why they chose their work and why they stay, and will have the opportunity to consider the retention practices at their own organizations.


Renée Downey Hart is a well known trainer and consultant whose work has offered her a global perspective of organizations and their people.  She is a visiting assistant professor in the management department at Le Moyne College, and has been a partner in the firm of Eagle Consultants, based in Syracuse, for over 20 years.  She holds a bachelor’s degree from Eisenhower College, a master’s degree from Chapman University and a doctorate from Syracuse University.


The session is free and open to the public. For more information, call (315)445-4485.
