Attracting and Retaining Key Personnel in an Uncertain Market

Unprecedented economic conditions worldwide have resulted in a series of challenges for nearly all companies. In the wake of the global financial crisis, preserving a company's vital assets, including human capital, is foremost of concern for executive management. Corporate downsizing, depressed equity values, limited access to capital, and liquidity issues have resulted in the re-evaluation of compensation programs designed to motivate employees. Given these significant challenges, new strategies will likely be required.

Join us as our experts share their views on attracting and retaining key personnel in this uncertain market. The panel will include perspectives from leading compensation consultants and executive recruiters who have been assisting management teams and compensation committees in dealing with these issues as well as perspectives from investors and directors. You will also hear how opportunistic companies are looking to take advantage of the present circumstances by supplementing or upgrading the financial management team to better deal with the current economic conditions.
