Events

Due to the current pandemic, ACE has gone virtual! We are still providing our monthly events among others.
The monthly meeting is held virtually and runs from 9:00 to 10:30.
Guests are welcome!

Normally ACE meets on the 3rd Friday of every month except August from 7:30-9:30am.  ACE meetings include networking, a buffet breakfast and a speaker. Guests are always welcome!

ACE monthly programs provide members and guests the opportunity to establish relationships through networking and to build working relationships with other professionals. Monthly program topics are selected as a means of strengthening the skills of members and increasing their awareness and knowledge of markets, business and social trends and professional disciplines that will enhance their particular fields. Speakers are sought that are both accomplished and offer a fresh perspective on a subject.

Workshops and seminars on business building skills and personal development are offered to members and to the business community. ACE also offers programs for the broader business community that brings together ACE professionals and experts from around the country.

    Employee Retention Strategies in the New Paradigm

    With the multigenerational workforce, competition for working age people, and a post pandemic view of the workplace, retaining people in Maine can be difficult. If you are fortunate to recruit people, your task has to focus on keeping them or keeping those you now have. There are leading strategies that help people have a sense of purpose, feel respect and supported that encourages them to be more engaged and more willing to stay. We are in a new paradigm today and it is likely not going to change. Purpose, Respect and Support are three overarching ideas that frame this session. Specifically the session will cover Designing your culture, Reward and Recognition strategies, and the Relationship between Feedback and Performance and finally Peer Coaching. This interactive session will explore the context, and strategies employers can use immediately to help retain their new and existing people. Participants will be encouraged to participate. There will be at least one take away document.

    Audience Takeaways:

    1. Leading practices for retention of employees for today's workforce 

    2. Actions they can take away to address retention in their organization 

    3. Where they can access more information and resources
