We’re looking forward to the KHCA/KCAL Convention and Trade Show at The Kansas Star Event Center!  Here’s just a snippet of the educational offerings that are scheduled so far:

Pre-Conference September 28th 2:00 – 5:00 PM
Retention 911:  Reviving, Inspiring, Engaging, Retaining!

Finally, here is your Golden Ticket to an event especially created for those of you who:

  • Have struggled mightily through this season of “unprecedented” headaches and heartaches!
  • Have recently considered trading in your credentials for a one-way ticket to a tropical paradise without a forwarding address!
  • Desperately need real and immediate solutions to the “Great Resignation!”

Nothing in the HR Handbook offers relief from the last 3 years of unending global mayhem. Variants, political pandemonium, and racial distress has left us all stranded on the corners of Depleted and Numb. Take a moment to imagine the positive outcomes when we create workplace cultures defined by passion, purpose, cooperation! How ready are you to make this the “Year of Retention?” You don’t have to rely on wishing, hoping, or crossed fingers to keep folks from rushing for the exits! No more “churn and burn!”  No more floor wars or cross-shift conflicts!

Staffing inconsistencies are robbing our residents of the peace and quality of care they expect and deserve! Haphazard, nonspecific retention and engagement strategies guarantee elevated hospital readmission rates, abysmal morale, no-call-no-shows, high accident rates, and pervasive overtime costs. The sheer impact of replacement costs alone threatens organizational survival.

Great news ahead! Retention 911: Reviving, Inspiring, Engaging, Retaining! dives deep into the hearts and minds of your colleagues to reveal what inspires and motivates them to STAY! This session promises to transform the energy traditionally reserved for worrying into countless strategies designed to kick the “workforce crisis” in the tail! How can you afford not to attend this session? Strap in!

Pre Conference is a separate ticket event.  Make sure you indicate you want to attend when you register.
