A speaking event for employees and the companies that employ them is taking place at Lawrence Technological University this month.
It’s a result of radio station WWJ Newsradio 950 and Lawrence Technological University partnering for another year of their Leaders and Innovators business speaker series.
This year’s programming, which runs through mid-April, kicks off with the Your Next Job event on Thursday, Sept. 20. Your Next Job will examine both how employees can improve their chances of landing better jobs but also how employers can better retain employees, thus dissuading them from leaving for competitors.
According to a release, a recent study shows that six out of 10 employees would leave their current company for better pay and/or benefits.
Murray Feldman, business editor for WWJ Newsradio 950, will moderate the event. The panel will include Pete Davis, president of Impact Management Services, an employee recruitment and personnel consulting firm with offices in Southfield, Chesterfield Township, Chicago, and Appleton, Wisconsin.
Additional events include:
- Thursday, Oct. 18: Weed in the Workplace
- Thursday, Nov. 15: Crash Course: Financial Fitness in the Workplace
- Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019: Business and Taxation
- Thursday, March 21, 2019: Women Entrepreneurs
- Thursday, April 18, 2019: Topic to be determined
The first event in the Leaders and Innovators business speaker series, Your Next Job, is on Thursday, Sept. 20 at the University Technology and Learning Center Gallery at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield. A continental breakfast and networking sessions begin at 7:30 a.m. The program runs from 8 to 9 a.m.
