Now more than ever, attracting and retaining talented employees is key to business success.  The disruption of the last few years has made being an “Employer of Choice” an even bigger challenge. Today, 51% of small businesses have job openings they cannot fill, far above the historical average. When Leslie and Joe Ryan implemented a holistic employee experience strategy at Reliable Electric, they saw immediate results in employee engagement and satisfaction. In this session, Leslie will walk you through the stories of life change and redemption she has seen at Reliable as she and Joe truly pour into their employees as image bearers of Christ.
