Dr. Marcus Fila Presents on how to keep good people from leaving your organization.

This session is geared towards CEOs and upper-level executives, strategic HR professionals, influential employees.

Stress is a physical or emotional reaction to believing that demands made of us exceed our ability to cope. Some stress is inevitable and even necessary, but acute or chronic stress is one of the leading causes of unwanted employee turnover, which comes with egregious costs to the organization, and the people who remain. This workshop is designed to help you lower unwanted turnover due to unnecessary stressors and other related reasons that are commonly overlooked; and to keep your valued employees engaged, committed, and dedicated.
