Put People First

Session Description

No one can argue that technology is disrupting the way we do HR. But it’ll never replace the need to develop people-centered workplaces. When employees feel they belong, have opportunities to grow, know their work has meaning, and trust their leaders – that’s when you create success. Put people first. Everything else will follow.

Kathleen Quinn Votaw biography

Kathleen knows what keeps CEOs up at night because she is one! It’s their people –– or at least it should be. Finding, keeping, and growing talent should never be an afterthought. It should be a daily endeavor, just like finding and keeping great customers.

As founder and CEO of TalenTrust, Kathleen is one of less than 2% of women business owners whose company broke the million-dollar mark. Along this journey, she’s learned an important lesson: a people-centric workplace is the key to attracting and retaining talent.

She’s helped 1,000+ diverse companies develop fulfilling cultures, targeted recruitment strategies and, most importantly, engaged employees who want to come to work each day.
With 30+ years of recruitment expertise, Kathleen will help you flip the switch on recruitment for good. You’ll learn to lead with trust (not suspicion), elicit honest feedback, and build a culture that inspires people to crush it.
