Don’t let your brightest talent walk away.

Hiring, developing and retaining employees is critical to your organization’s success. Keeping in mind that today’s hires are tomorrow’s leaders, it is imperative that employers harness the potential of their employees to drive organizational change and prosperity.

The NC Chamber is here to help. Our second class of North Carolina’s Emerging Leaders will take a deep dive into numerous topics, all of which refine their professionalism, leadership acumen and executive presence while enhancing their understanding of North Carolina’s social, economic and political landscape. Reward your most promising employees with an unforgettable two-day program of professional development, while instilling loyalty and pride to be a part of your team.
