Advancement shops are facing a significant issue: an unprecedented increase in employee attrition rates.

The University of Virginia is tackling this challenge head-on. They’ve fully embraced a hybrid work model, adopting the mantra of: “Work where your work will be best supported.”

During this webinar we cover:

  • How UVA has proactively tackled the Great Resignation – and is holding its retention rate steady – by leading a flexible work environment.
  • The strategic decisions, technology integration, and cultural shifts that have facilitated the transition to hybrid work
  • How the team has overcome obstacles to become a more nimble workplace
  • Where the advancement industry should be looking to stay competitive with other industries and retain top talent
