Westerville, OH 43082

A limited number of rooms have been blocked at the OHCA rate. The hotel may have additional rooms available once all of the OHCA rooms are gone, but they may not be at the special rate, even if you contact them prior to the cut off date. It is unlikely that they will be able to extend the cutoff date of December 24 due to the busy nature of their hotel and since rooms go quickly, there may not be any available rooms left at that point.

To make a reservation, call the hotel directly at 833-427-0292 and ask for Reservations. Mention you are attending the OHCA Workforce Summit. The group rate is $159

2:15 pm Managing When No One Wants to Work

Experts suggest that by 2022 the millennial generation (1980-2001) will make up over 50% of our workplace and 75% of the global workforce by 2030. It is imperative that today?s organizations discover new ways to excite and engage this generation without abandoning the other predominate generations in the workforce (Gen X & Baby Boomers). In this session, attendees will learn how to effectively communicate and lead in a multi-generational environment. Shifting the focus away from recruiting and chasing employees, to attracting and hiring the very best of them, is the only way to manage. This session will provide practical strategies and tactics that you can implement right now to attract, motivate and retain the most dedicated, hardworking and passionate employees to your team.
