Solutions to the Labor Shortage Problem
JUNE 25, 2019
In an increasingly tight labor market, hiring managers in companies across a broad range of industries are asking: How can we find the talent we need? How do we retain our current employees?
Based on the results from The Conference Board 2019 Labor Shortages Solutions Survey, a broad-based survey of CHROs and talent acquisition professionals, we draw valuable insights into how companies are attracting talent using compensation and training incentives, new HR technologies, and other talent acquisition strategies.
Join experts from The Conference Board as they respond to the questions:
- What implications do recruitment and retention difficulties have on day-to-day business operations?
- What actions have companies taken to address recruitment and retention difficulties—and how do these actions differ when targeting workers in blue-collar versus white-collar occupations?
- To what extent are companies investing in automation, artificial intelligence, and other new technologies to reduce staffing needs?
Who Should Attend: Executives, directors, and senior and mid-level managers responsible for Talent Acquisition, Human Capital Analytics, Strategic HR, or other functions related to attracting and retaining workers, as well as CHROs, Chief Talent Officers, and other C-suite members interested in this topic.
