The 3 'R's of HR



Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Best Practices, LLC

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
     Even during an economic slowdown, your best employees will always have
 other job offers.  In any economy, employee defection damages a company's
 valuable intellectual capital and human investments.  In today's increasingly
 technical workplace, knowledge workers, and the key intellectual property they
 possess, often determine a company's ability to survive.  Without proper
 retention strategies, companies face the difficulty and cost of replacing lost
 knowledge.
     An expert from Motorola will explain how future technologies will further
 increase the need to identify and retain key intellectual assets and
 Motorola's strategy for retaining its best talent at HR 2001: The 3 "R"s of HR
 (http://www.GlobalBenchmarking.com/meetings/).
     Specific topics to be discussed will include understanding the new work
 principles and needs of Free Agents, fostering work environments that
 encourage Free Agents to stay and thrive, Motorola's overall employee
 retention strategy, and Motorola's retention tools.
     The Global Benchmarking Council (http://www.GlobalBenchmarking.com) will
 hold its spring quarterly meeting - HR 2001: The 3 "R"s of HR - May 9-11, 2001
 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego, CA.  Presenting companies
 include Motorola, FedEx, IBM, Texas Instruments, Kellogg's, Nationwide and
 Pacific Gas & Electric.
     Drawn by discussions of "The 3 "R"s of HR: Recruiting, Retention &
 Reorganization," and Benchmarking and Best Practice Sharing, GBC members and
 guests will gather in San Diego to trade insights and information through
 detailed presentations, success sharing roundtables, and informal
 conversations.  Guests will also share in the collective experience of member
 organizations including Cisco Systems, Ford, QUALCOMM, Dell, AT&T, Lucent,
 DuPont, GM, and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals.
