Event Details


Discussion Topic:

Today's higher education leaders must not only guide their institutions but also foster a nurturing environment for employees. Recognizing this pivotal role, Dr. Robert Garza has been instrumental in implementing the transformative "Care y Corazon" program at Palo Alto College in San Antonio, which is enhancing the sense of belonging among employees, leading to higher job satisfaction, and improving retention rates.

Join us for this interactive, CEO-only discussion about "Reimagining Presidential Engagement of Employees."

What to Expect:

This session is designed as an interactive platform for CEO sharing and learning. During our hour together, you will:

  • Discuss current challenges with employee retention.
  • Learn about Palo Alto College's "Care y Corazón" program and explore employee engagement models that can be adapted to your institution.
  • Gain insights from other AFIT members' employee engagement models and share your own strategies.

Why this topic? Why now?

During the 2022-23 academic year, voluntary turnover for higher ed staff was the highest it has been since the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) started tracking it in 2017-18, according to the firm's 2023 Higher Education Employee Retention Survey (ERS).

This session is designed to help you:

  • Explore innovative ways to increase employee satisfaction and retention.
  • Network and collaborate with fellow CEOs and build valuable relationships.
  • Leave with actionable strategies and new perspectives on presidential engagement of employees.

Your presence and participation will help us all in shaping a more engaged and satisfied workforce in our colleges.
