The short: Coffee + Breakfast + Benefits. With an increasingly competitive startup scene, group benefits programs can often be a deal-breaker or deal-maker when it comes to finding all-stars to join your startup team. Join us over breakfast to hear which benefits have the highest ROI's and which perks can be left behind.

How do you convince people to join your team, how do you compensate them and more importantly how do you retain them? One of the hardest things about building a startup is surrounding yourself with a motivated team that you can trust and grow with. A founder's worst nightmare is high turnover in their company, and with articles coming out encouraging people to leave every 3 years, it's a valid nightmare. Come hear from experts who will help you alleviate this fear.

Join Marcus Acaster and Enoch Weng, and discover how to attract and retain quality talent in your growing Startup company. We'll be discussing:

- Creating a workplace culture that allows your team to grow with your company
- Understanding the benefits you can provide as a company and how to leverage them to keep your employees content and motivated
- This event will be helpful for:
- Founders and senior leadership of growing startups with 3 to 500 employees
- Startups who have achieved product-market fit

If you have a company that has some really spectacular team members that you want to keep around for a while, this is going to be a 'can’t miss' workshop for you. Coffee and Breakfast provided.
