Cara Silletto Speaker Biography

Workforce thought leader Cara Silletto, MBA, CSP, works with organizations of all sizes to reduce unnecessary employee turnover by bridging generational gaps and making managers more effective in their roles.

Workforce Magazine in Chicago named Cara a “Game Changer” and Recruiter.com listed her in their “Top 10 Company Culture Experts to Watch,” list. She is also the author of the book, Staying Power: Why Your Employees Leave & How to Keep Them Longer. Today, she’s a highly-sought-after national speaker conducting 50 to 100 engagements annually and she has earned her Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.

As one of the first Millennials in the work world, Cara learned early in her career, from her Baby Boomer and GenX mentors, what “professionalism” meant to them, and absorbed critical information about management expectations during her first decade in the business world. She then went on to earn her Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from the top-ranked University of Louisville Entrepreneurship program, and then lived overseas teaching German executives about business practices in the U.S. In 2012, Cara started her workforce retention consulting firm Magnet Culture.

Staying Power: How to Keep Employees Longer
Designed for management and HR audiences.

While some of today’s workforce is made up of deep-rooted, dependable staff, a larger number of positions are now a revolving door of employee turnover. Workforce thought leader Cara Silletto will share insight on why staffing is so challenging today and additional ways to gain greater staffing stability. Learn how to slow the revolving door, more effectively manage the impending shorter-term workforce, and maximize the time you have with each employee.
• Discover current employee turnover trends and future staffing projections
• Uncover the real reasons employees leave most organizations and ways to encourage them to stay
• Learn ways to become a M.A.G.N.E.T. employer who attracts better applicants and keeps staff longer

Workforce Wake-up Call: The Case for Operationalizing Turnover
Designed for leadership and decision makers.

In the current workforce landscape, employees have the upper hand with “now hiring” signs on every corner. Staffing challenges and employee turnover are here to stay. It’s time for leaders to rethink staffing stability and set realistic goals, budgets, and business models around permanent turnover. The best way to increase employee retention is to plan for and adjust current operations to manage impending levels of employee turnover and make the proper long-term retention investments.

Magnet Culture’s workforce thought leader Cara Silletto will explore strategies for operationalizing turnover so organizations can plan for sustainable success. With a 12-month turnover reduction goal set, you can budget for the remaining turnover AND for the three unquestionable investments needed to hit the goal. As the saying goes, failing to plan is planning to fail. Make your organization a place where keeping people is an actual goal and not just a recurring discussion.

Learning Objectives:
• Discover current employee turnover trends and future staffing projections
• Learn ways to plan and implement strategies to prepare for on-going turnover
• Determine strategies to close the gap to keep people longer and improve profitability

The Case for Change: Critical Workforce Insights for the C-Suite
Designed for senior leadership and decision-maker audiences.

Excessive employee turnover is impacting the bottom line, and organizations are now making workforce retention an executive priority. This session discusses several critical factors when rethinking our approach to staffing, including:
• How the internal “blame game” keeps organizations from gaining the staffing stability needed to be more productive and profitable
• How the current and projected employment landscape is impacting our business practices
• Why today’s workforce has incredibly different expectations than their leaders
• Strategies for keeping people longer through adjusted incentives and creative advancement
• Ways to prioritize retention initiatives for the greatest ROI

Creating a Realistic Retention Roadmap for Sustainable Success
For HR and leadership audiences.

In today’s challenging workforce market, changes must be made to stabilize staffing and return to a higher quality of care and profitability. But how exactly do we move forward when we’re already short-staffed and have no time to determine which changes will be most beneficial or ultimately implement those changes to create that better place to work?

In this valuable session, Cara Silletto, will provide an audit of the current effectiveness and attractiveness of your organization as an employer, and then support your creation of a realistic retention roadmap identifying which areas of the business can function as they are, which need a simple tune-up, and which must go into the shop for an extensive overhaul.

Learning Objectives:
• Identify gaps between where our culture is today versus where it needs to be to effectively attract and retain talent.
• Prioritize potential retention initiatives to gain the greatest ROI with the smallest time commitment.
• Discuss a plan of action for retention initiatives that will make a difference.
