Three years after the recession, high unemployment rates and historically low wage growth rates in the United States continue to weigh on the U.S. economy and its weak economic growth. Today’s U.S. labor markets are also changing, as there are persistent trends in delaying retirement among the aging workforce. How can the United States increase job creation and recover from the recession to return to prerecession job numbers? Is it possible? This webcast explores U.S. and global employment challenges and how companies are redesigning the nature of work to meet these challenges.
