Roberta's Universe - The Solar System of Talent

Most people believe they have a solar system of talent in their organization. In reality, all they have is one planet – or a few stars.

Imagine the possibilities when talent is circling around your organization, waiting for an opportunity to join your universe. What if you were able to create the kind of gravitational pull that compels stars to remain with your company?

As the economy improves, talented workers who have new choices will be moving around more, leaving their employers with huge gaps to fill. Younger people coming into the workforce today tend to stay for a while then move on, unless given a good reason to stay. The Solar System of Talent is a proven program that addresses both of these issues – and more! Roberta will help your organization create its own gravitational pull that attracts incredible talent into your company's orbit - and keeps it there. She’ll help you dramatically reduce the time and money you are investing in recruiting and retaining star employees by showing you how to shift from first gear to warp speed.

After Roberta’s help in developing a constellation of super stars for their organizations, leaders at world-class companies like Best Buy, New Balance and Samuel Adams report that they have experienced outcomes such as increased profitability that is out of this world.

I believe we will not only hire more efficiently but also more effectively as a result of our work with Roberta and Matuson Consulting."
– Amy Waryas, Director, Human Resources, Samuel Adams

Roberta will help you develop your leadership team so they will naturally catch the attention of the right talent. But most important of all, she'll help you develop a sustainable process to attract, nurture and retain top employees. Your world will become dramatically more predictable and secure as your organization builds a rational Solar System of Talent. Imagine transforming your organization’s talent acquisition and retention from a chaotic framework of talent uncertainty into a process that runs like clockwork – just like the solar system.

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Roberta to other CEOs who are looking to accelerate the speed and quality of decision-making."
– Tom Hopcroft, President & CEO, Mass Leadership Technology Council

By applying the framework of The Solar System of Talent, your leaders will see, with telescope-like precision, what's working and needs to be codified. They’ll learn how to identify black holes where you're losing talent, and how to intensify your organization’s gravitational pull. Like Roberta’s best clients, they will come to recognize the power of creating employee evangelists who exponentially expand your ability to attract superstars. These lessons represent essential "big bang" strategic shifts necessary for your organization's long-term future success.

When you invest in The Solar System of Talent, Roberta personally will go to your organization to work exclusively and intimately with your leadership and executive team. After all, transformational results require decisions that must be made at the executive level, not by the HR department. The session will be live, interactive, and packed full of value, including options for on-going coaching or mentoring. All participants will receive a signed copy of her latest book, The Magnetic Workplace: How to Attract Top Talent That Will Stick Around (Nicholas Brealey, 2013).

"When it comes to management of people, Roberta sees through all the noise and gets to the heart of the matter."
– Mark Spitzer, Director of Manufacturing, Google Glass
