Jeff Kortes

Mr. Kortes will discuss retaining and amplifying the capitol that makes up your workforce. He has worked 25 years as a human resources professional, trainer, and consultant. Jeff has held leadership roles in companies such as ConAgra, Midas International, SPX, and Regal Ware, Inc.

During that quarter-century, Jeff saw countless employees come and go. The reasons rarely varied. The employers suffered, though, as good people left. Over time, Jeff devised a plan of inventive, common-sense employee retention strategies to help businesses keep their best talent.
