He will describe the expectations that leading companies like Deere have of future employees. He will also describe how a traditional organization like Deere is responding to the expectations of employees in this ever-competitive environment to attract the best talent.
It’s never too early to make “after graduation plans,” so join us for lunch and bring your questions to this interactive seminar.
