For years, you have been hearing about the looming labor shortages that will occur as a result of the retirement of baby boomers. We find that most thought leaders do not sufficiently emphasize what a significant effect the impending workforce crunch could have on your company’s bottom line as corporate profits are squeezed by both rising labor costs and modest revenue growth.

To help you navigate this new terrain, The Conference Board is releasing a major report that highlights when and where we expect the highest risk of labor shortages. Join us as we discuss which countries are more likely to experience labor shortages both at present and in the coming decade.

Who Should Attend: This webcast reflects the first chapter of the report Declining Unemployment and Evolving Talent Shortages. It will be of keen interest to C-suite executives and their teams, as we explain the when and where of the looming labor shortages to encourage active strategic planning.

This program has been approved for 1 ( HR (General)) recertification credit hour toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute. For more information about certification or recertification, please visit the HR Certification Institute website at www.hrci.org.
