Program Description
The pandemic has caused a great deal of disruption in talent acquisition and the way teams find and retain talent. Changes in candidate expectations, the Great Resignation and resulting increase in open roles, virtual interviewing and onboarding, remote workers – all have loaded new demands on recruiting teams and fundamentally changed the approach to finding talent.
 
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a whopping 19 million workers quit their jobs between March 2021 and July 2021. We’ll discuss the underlying societal causes that are changing worker perspectives and impacting the talent shortage and look at how the volatility and dire nature of these talent challenges call for a broader focus on recruitment, retention and engagement.
 
Discussion Points:
  • What are you seeing as the biggest reasons for the talent shortage?
  • What is the impact of remote work on hiring and retention?
  • What can you do to help your organization or your clients’ organizations to improve employee engagement and retention?
