2014 Center for Energy Workforce Development Summit

CEWD_200

November 5-7, 2014  -- Crystal City Marriot – Arlington, VA

CEWD’s 2014 Annual Summit focuses on ways energy companies, partnering with their educational and workforce partners, can improve their “people” ROI, while competing effectively for qualified and diverse workers.  Beginning with the hard but important work of workforce planning, this year’s agenda will showcase examples of companies that are using CEWD member tools effectively to plan for growing attrition and shrinking applicant pools.  A workforce plan is only as successful as its execution, and CEWD will offer examples and best practices of companies that are implementing their workforce strategies successfully with focused talent pipeline strategies.  At the end of the day, ROI always comes down to the numbers, and people strategy is no different.  We’ll wrap up this year’s Annual Summit understanding how improved people strategies are speaking for themselves in the Board Room.
