2022 Employee Turnover Trends & Safeguards
As the hiring pool has become increasingly smaller, the importance of retaining good employees has increased significantly. This session will provide multifamily employee turnover trends through Q1 2022 by position category to provide insight into what roles continue to be at greatest risk, and what roles are leveling off and improving when it comes to retention. In addition, I’ll share employee feedback that highlights the drivers that keep each role at their current companies, and what may cause them to look elsewhere.
Session 2 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Burnout Breakthrough: Reigniting a Passion for Performance
After two years of unprecedented stress and disruption, many multifamily professionals are still reeling. On-site teams have dealt with challenges on every front, including balancing work and family responsibilities, excessive resident issues, constantly changing policies and procedures, social unrest, heightened political discourse, not to mention their personal well-being. In this session, let’s take a brief look at the change immediately behind us, recognize the signs of normalcy immediately in front of us, and lay out practical steps to support and guide your team toward increased engagement, productivity, and wellness.
