Webinar: Winning the War for Talent - Part 2

Wednesday | April 20 | 3 pm ET | Register Now

ECIA is partnering with the Association Education Alliance to bring you this webinar! The war for talent is escalating. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up highly performing “impact players” and supercharge their growth. Join this session to learn more. Remember to select ECIA in the drop down at registration.
