If the Great Resignation has you dealing with accelerating turnover that’s slowing down your team’s progress, you are not alone. But you are also not helpless. By focusing on creating inclusive environments within your team (in ways that are authentic to your association’s culture), you can keep your top talent engaged so you don’t miss a beat.
So, how do you actually do it? We invited Victor Cora Nazario, Chief Operating Officer at SOAR Community Network, to join Michael Hoffman, CEO of Gather Voices, for a live, 1-hour conversation on reducing turnover by creating inclusive cultures. They discussed:
