wisnet.com Develops and Retains with YPF
I’ve often seen the slogan “What if we invest money in our employees education and they leave?” As we all know, the larger question should be “What if we DON’T and they stay?” It’s our job as leaders in our company to give our employees every opportunity to grow themselves both personally and professionally.
wisnet.com is a small organization and when it comes to our time outside the office, we really need to be selective to those organiziations that will have great benefit to our employees. Young Professionals of FDL is an organization that we are most heavily involved in.
It’s important for both retaining and developing our employees that they get to know people outside the wisnet.com doors. These relationships developed are what cultivate their love for Fond du Lac and the opportunities that are offered here.
Secondly, nowhere else can they get such a cost effective education. There is an entire deck of events that focus on financial development, communication skills, time management and so much more. These are things that many businesses certainly can’t cover in their normal deck of education.
Last but not least, YPF is an investment in the future of Fond du Lac as a community. The people listed on the YPF member list signify the leaders of tomorrow. They have chose to not sit back and wait for their opportunity to come, but rather to push to grab it today.
Personally, I have only been a YPF member for 2 years. But in this short time, I have had the opportunity to get to know some pretty amazing people. Diverse industries, backgrounds and approaches have allowed me to fine tune my networking and communication skills. The event offerings have been a chance for me to get outside the office and learn things that can benefit me personally and have allowed me to be exposed to speakers I wouldn’t have had the chance otherwise.
Every business in this community knows the importance of recruiting and retaining the younger workforce. I believe YPF is the channel that is needed to help cultivate this group of people.
