Talent Acquisition Conference

Closing the Gap – A Focus on Your Future Workforce
OCTOBER 17 - 18, 2019 | WESTIN NEW YORK AT TIMES SQUARE | NEW YORK, NY

October 16, 2019

Talent Shortages:  Challenges and Solutions

Labor shortages is one of the main trends impacting businesses in the US and many other countries. It is likely to remain a major challenge in the next decade. The Conference Board was one of the first organizations to identify the problem in 2014. Since then we accumulated a large amount of research and insights about the topic. In September 2019, The Conference Board will release a major report on solutions to labor shortages, which is also the topic of this pre-conference.

Join us for this pre-conference event, where our expert speakers and practitioners will describe the labor shortages problem, but focus on how companies are, or should be, dealing with it.

 

Reserve your seat and join us in NYC at the Westin New York at Times Square!

Agenda:

9:00 - 10:15 am

Labor shortages in the US: challenges and solutions

In this session we will discuss the labor shortages problem in the US. Why is it happening? What is the impact on recruiting, retention, compensation and corporate profits? In what types of jobs, shortages are more acute? In what geographies labor availability is more limited? How are these trends likely to change in the next decade?

To gauge how companies are dealing with labor shortages, The Conference Board fielded a large survey among HR and talent acquisition executives. Using this survey, one on one interviews and other sources, we will provide an overview of how companies are dealing with labor shortages. What solutions are commonly used? What solutions are rarely used?

Speakers:

Gad Levanon, Chief Economist, North America, The Conference Board

Robin Erickson, Principal Researcher, The Conference Board

Elizabeth Crofoot, Senior Economist, The Conference Board

10:15 - 10:30 am 
Networking break
10:30 - 11:30 am

Talent acquisition Solutions

In this session we will focus on talent acquisition and recruiting solutions. A panel of business and HR executives and recruiting experts will discuss the shortages their companies are facing and how they are trying to react to these shortages? What solutions work? What solutions don’t work?

Speakers:

Mary Lee Hannell, Chief Human Resource Officer, The Port Authority of NY & NJ

Tomya Watt, Vice President of Talent Acquisition, Memorial Sloan Kettering

Matt Sigelman, CEO, Burning Glass Technologies

Lunch break
1:30 - 2:30 pm

Expanding recruiting to non-typical demographics

Many companies are expanding their recruitment efforts by tapping further into demographic groups like minorities, older workers, people with disabilities, and individuals with lower education levels. Additionally, we find that in some blue-collar occupations where the share of women is very small, there has recently been a large increase in their numbers. In this session we will discuss these trends and hear from HR executives on what their companies are doing in that context.

Speakers:

Jack Chen, Associate General Counsel, U.S. Immigration and Employment Policy, Microsoft Corporation

2:30 – 2:45 am 
Networking break
2:45 - 3:45 pm

Automation Solutions

Throughout most of the past decade, job seekers were abundant and cheap, and profits were high. As a result, the pressure to automate and cut labor cost was somewhat muted. Now it is different. We are seeing some signs of a comeback of automation. But where? In what types of jobs automation is more likely to occur? What will be the overall impact on the US labor market. Bart van Ark, Chief economist at The Conference Board, will host a panel of automation experts to discuss trends in automation.

Speakers:

Martin Fleming, Chief Economist and VP, Business Performance Services, IBM

Susan Lund, Partner, McKinsey Global Institute

Bart van Ark, Chief Economist, The Conference Board

Enter Generation Z

Gen Z employees – truly “Your Future Workforce” - are not just younger millennials. This generation has distinctive needs and viewpoints of the role of employers and work in their lives. Companies that have adjusted behavior to meet the perceived interests/needs of millennials cannot stay the course and be attractive to the newest generation to enter the workforce. There are several ways that Gen Zers stand out from other generations in the workforce. Gen Z workers place a greater importance on the status and prestige a company provides their personal brand, and they appreciate when employers are known as a company that recognizes the importance of employees’ lives outside of work. To be attractive to the influx of Gen Z workers, employers who offer flexible work schedules should also ensure that work and life have separation – one way to do this is banning emails after a certain time in the evening.

The Gig Economy and the Future Workforce

The gig economy and demographic shifts are disrupting the workplace, redefining employees’ workplace expectations. There are now five generations working side by side. Employees’ definitions of family are changing, and certain demographics, like single women, are on the rise. Employees have very distinct wants and needs and expect their employers to meet them. To attract and retain top talent in this new era, especially during a time of decreasing unemployment rates, employers have an opportunity to adapt their workplaces to address the unique needs of their employees. In the past, there was a clear delineation between work and life. That line is now blurred with work and life overlapping more than ever before. As this happens, employees are looking to their employers to help them with their overall benefits and wellness needs, whether it’s through gym memberships to stay healthy or financial education programs to plan for their futures.
