In an April 2016 report from The Conference Board, our experts discussed current labor shortages and their business implications in the US. Since then, the labor market has continued to rapidly tighten to the point that we now operate in a labor market that is as tight as it was in 2007. Labor shortages are becoming a reality for many employers who struggle to recruit and retain workers and control wage growth.
During this special webcast, TCB economists will share new insights based on labor market research conducted over the past year. In addition to discussing recent macro trends, our experts will address varying US labor market conditions across locations, occupations, and industries and their implications for corporate profits.
Who Should Attend: Senior HR practitioners including talent acquisition, HR strategy, SWP, and HC analytics; finance and strategy executives; economists; and anyone whose job is directly affected by labor market conditions
