From onboarding to retirement, are you protecting your organization’s “secret sauce”?

On December 12th, 2013, over 500 global registrants joined us to hear from our distinguished panel as they shared the importance of protecting an organization’s “secret sauce” – the unique and vital knowledge that keeps day-to-day operations in motion, drives creativity and innovation, and sets it apart from the competition. 

Between an aging workforce and Millennials who change jobs frequently, business productivity is at risk. Unique knowledge is lost when employees leave or retire. And it isn’t just lost knowledge, fast-growing companies see workforces expand and transition into new roles, resulting in the need to rapidly onboard and transition scores of new and internal employees. Mergers, reorganizations, and new technology rollouts also change employee knowledge requirements and can further strain a workforce’s productivity and ability to innovate in the critical short and midterm.
