VALDOSTA – Retaining quality talent is a struggle for employers everywhere, so much so that the Internet stays abuzz with articles providing insight into why good employees leave their jobs and what employees value most about their respective workplaces. In response to the high demand for best practices on how to keep happy and high-performing employees, the Human Capital Institute (HCI) will host the 2016 Workforce Planning & Analytics Conference from February 10–12 in Atlanta.
Identifying and sharing solutions for common talent management issues is HCI’s main focus. The organization collects useful insight from its network of Fortune 1000 and Global 2000 businesses, industry experts and thought leaders, government agencies, business schools, and academic research. HCI then delivers top talent expertise and cutting-edge practices through various channels like webcasts and videos, blogs and infographics, conferences, and online and classroom training.
When HCI decided to address employers on how implementing viable talent recruitment and management strategies can sustain and grow business, it looked no further than Trey Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Insurance Services. Since taking the reins of his family’s 48 year old insurance and financial services agency, Taylor has completely re-engineered its human capital management strategies. In an industry where an 11% retention rate at 36 months amounts to bragging rights, Taylor Insurance Services takes pride in keeping its people empowered and engaged at over 600% the industry average. With management experience from major corporations like WebMD, EarthLink, and AOL/Time Warner, Taylor brings large company thinking to small company execution in his own business and to startups like Azalea Health Innovations, AgencySpotter, and SealShield where he acts as an advisor. A nod to his contribution to the success of these and other organizations, Taylor was named one of Georgia Trend’s 40 Under 40 in 2013.
Taylor’s firm, headquartered in Valdosta, Georgia provides a full complement of benefit plans to employers with high-impact, high-value products and services that cover the full spectrum of employee needs from medical, supplemental, group, and ancillary to telemedicine products. In Q4 of 2015, the firm also launched a new program to introduce its product and service offering to the individual consumer through a private exchange called The Power of T.
In 2014, Taylor Insurance Services was recognized for its excellence in employee satisfaction with the Happiest Company, Employee Recognition, Cheers for Peers Giver, and Cheers for Peers Recipient Awards from TINYpulse, an organization which regularly polls employees for satisfaction and suggestion for improvement. Taylor will address the relevance of employee opinion and explain how executives can use such information to develop a more effective work environment in a session titled Tackling Real-Time Feedback to Retain Your A+ Talent. In this session, Taylor and other experts will explain how to get employees excited about sharing their perspectives, how to encourage continuous and consistent feedback, and how analysis can be used for business culture development.
