"Creating a Station Environment No One Wants to Leave"

Kevin Benz

with Kevin Benz, Principal, KevinBenz.News

The best way to recruit the best talent is to create a newsroom no one wants to leave. Retention is the core of good recruiting and it takes a village to build a positive newsroom culture. Everyone in the newsroom is responsible for the culture of the newsroom, making what we do better and how we do it more efficient, and doing it all while supporting each other. Kevin will introduce you to some new ways of thinking about your own work in the newsroom, and outside it. How you can contribute to making your newsroom and yourself better. And how you can help retain your best and recruit better.
