The state of the labor market has a profound impact on the types of challenges that human capital professionals face. Some of the implications of this current weak labor market are shared across most businesses.

In this webcast we will discuss these implications:

  • Strong profits versus weak wage growth
  • Low employee engagement, but high retention rates
  • Cautious hiring due to lack of demand
  • Many qualified applicants in spite of emerging pockets of talent shortages
  • Older workers are delaying retirement and the workforce is aging quickly
  • Beginning to think about re-shoring

Audience: If you are a human resources leader, or professional responsible for human capital analytics, labor markets, strategic workforce planning, workforce readiness, or strategic initiatives, participating in this webcast will help you address your most pressing labor market issues. Labor market economists are strongly encouraged to participate.
