The global recession was a reminder that business leaders operate in a world of uncertainty. Many workforce challenges facing companies have changed, and in the scramble to survive the economic downturn many talent management leaders rightfully took a short term focus. While many workforce planners prepare for talent problems that they may face, they are much less aware of potential talent opportunities. Companies should be aware and ready to take advantage of these talent opportunities, particularly those that will emerge during the economic upturn.
We will contrast how the labor markets in various countries and regions have changed in the last two and a half years.
Significant employment declines in many developed countries have created a large pool of ready workers. But in a buyers’ market, where are the bargains? For those companies who have identified their critical talent, this webcast can help them identify where and when to find these workers.
