Are You Looking for a Speaker at
Your Next Event?
Available to present in person or virtually.
You want to build a work environment where employees love coming to work and customers love doing business with you. And you also want to build a dedicated workforce of loyal top talent. But, there’s a problem…
It can be solved.
Many organizations are struggling to fill job positions and keep the talent they have, with no end in sight.
It’s a problem seen across many organizations – including Fortune 500 companies.
Recruiting processes of many businesses have a failure rate of 50 percent – 50% – at every job level from hourly employees, supervisors, managers, and even in the executive suite.
And organizations don’t know what to do about it.
This can be a very costly problem – into the tens of millions for some organizations.
But it’s not an unsolvable problem.
When employees love their job and the people they work with, they will want to stay. And people love to do business with people who love what they do!
It’s a win-win and it’s very possible.
When you book Roberta for a speaking event in person or virtually, you’ll walk away knowing exactly what you need to do to attract talent, increase employee retention, and achieve higher levels of profitability. You can create a team of stellar employees that want to stay.
For more than 25 years,
Roberta Matuson, president of Matuson Consulting, has helped leaders in Fortune 500 companies, including Monster, Staples, Best Buy, and Microsoft, achieve dramatic growth and market leadership through the maximization of talent. She is known world-wide as “The Talent Maximizer®.”
Here is a list of the most popular speaking topics:
Evergreen Talent®: How to Hire and Cultivate a Sustainable Workforce
How is it that some organizations in the same industry have a bounty of talent while others are barren? The most successful companies have what I call Evergreen Talent®. While on the outside, it may seem like this forest of talent miraculously grew to new heights overnight, nothing could be further than the truth.
In this dynamic session, leaders will be challenged to think differently about their approach to growing a sustainable workforce, that regenerates year after year, with minimal effort on their part. Together, we’ll design a plot plan to grow an evergreen forest of talent, that will stand tall for years to come.
How to Create a 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. Acquiring and retaining out of this world talent is achievable when you know how to create an organization that pulls people into your gravitational field, while simultaneously creating a force field that thwarts others from pulling superstars out of your company.
Leaders attending this highly interactive session will leave with tools they can use to begin transforming their workplaces into organizations that effortlessly attract both employees and customers.
Managing Up in the Top-Down World of Business
Let’s get one thing straight. Managing Up is not about brown-nosing or becoming the bosses’ favorite. It’s about learning how to work within the confines of an organization to get what you need, while helping your boss and the organization meet their objectives.
Learn the secrets to effectively using influence, while acting with integrity and purpose.
The Magnetic Leader: How Irresistible Leaders Attract Employees, Customers, and Profits
Imagine having a line of people outside your door, waiting for an opportunity to work for you. Magnetic leaders don’t have to imagine this, as this is their reality. Being recognized as a magnetic leader can dramatically accelerate your ability to hire top talent that will stick around, which will fast-track your professional success.
In this powerful session, Roberta teaches participants how to transform from a manager into a magnetic leader.
Guard Your Exits: How to Retain Top Talent
What’s the point of hiring great people, if you can’t keep them? Nobody likes to talk about it, even though it is happening in workplaces all across America – employees who have decided it is time to fly the coop. Company departure lounges are overflowing with employees waiting for their final boarding call. Employees rarely start a job thinking they will tour around the company for a while and then seek greener pastures, and yet it happens all the time.
Participants will learn what today’s employee seeks from their employer and how to prevent workers from taking the next flight out of the organization.
