Talent Retention & Engagement

If your organization does not have a culture that engages and retains top-tier talent, it won’t survive today’s changing, innovative economy. While many organizations strive to achieve employee engagement, only 15% of employees worldwide indicate they are engaged with their jobs. Engaged employees are more loyal, more productive, and more creative members of your organization. The Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED) can help you design a talent development ecosystem that will engage your employees, fuel your talent pipeline, and grow your business success.

Featured Topics

Employee Engagement

More than ever before, organizations need to intentionally create a culture of engaged employees. Engagement is built on the trust between an organization and the people working each day to help that organization meet its goals. Without engaged employees, your organization will be crippled by high turnover rates and low productivity.

Succession Planning

For your employees, succession plans boost their self-esteem while providing a career path for the future. Moreover, your managers and leadership team view succession plans as proactive measures that help with talent development and ensure organizational stability during times of significant change and uncertainty.

Creating a Culture of Respect & Inclusion

Employees desire to work in a respectful and inclusive environment. Many organizations claim to value and support such an environment; yet most of these same organizations fail to reach their diversity goals. Leaders who genuinely want to create a diverse workforce need to model inclusive behavior and sponsor inclusivity with intention.

Additional Topics

Team Development

Teams grow and develop through clear team goals, shared effort, skill and knowledge building, clear behavioral norms, and feedback.

Team Engagement

In order to engage a team, each individual’s goals must align to the team’s goals, and the team’s goals must align to organizational goals.

Team Management

Effective team managers need to focus on proper team alignment, unified processes, stable relationships, and impactful cultural traits.


As managers transition from individual contributors, they need the skills to provide relevant feedback and keep employees engaged.

Conflict Management

Conflict can be an opportunity for your team. Mangers need to apply the right tools to leverage conflict as a source of team improvement.

Wellbeing & Mindfulness

Mindfulness allows individuals to act intentionally, increasing focus, personal effectiveness, and engagement.

Team Communication & Collaboration

Team collaboration depends on the nature of the team and the work they’re creating. Not all teams need significant collaboration.

Team Assessments

Valid, reliable assessments offer objective insights that managers can use to identify areas of focus to improve team performance.
