Employers fretting about attracting and retaining workers should look in the mirror. Their corporate culture could be an asset or a liability.

David Irvine, a leadership and personal development expert, will offer some insights into creating an employee-friendly environment during a presentation in Rocky Mountain House on Jan. 30. He will speak on the topic, Building a high-performance culture — the power of values alignment to attract and retain your best people.

The breakfast meeting will wrap up with a networking session from 9:30 to 10.
