The Senior HR Executive Conference KeyNotes Report

As older workers are retiring and new technologies are emerging, many companies are having a difficult time filling jobs. Job applicants and current employees lack the necessary skills. For example, students brought up on computers rather than on the playground often lack the social skills that are essential in a team-based work environment. Companies need to consider the effects that computers have on people early in life, and weigh whether they need to offer training in interpersonal skills.
