In recent years, labor markets across the world have been tightening. Yet, large variation across countries and industries remain. Tightening labor markets have a strong impact on recruiting, retention and labor costs, and employers are already reacting to the labor crunch in various ways.  

Hear from our expert economists on recent trends, the outlook for both global and US labor markets, and the impact the current situation will have on businesses.

Insights from this webcast: 

  • How holding back on compensation growth could impact employee turnover, recruiting, and job satisfaction
  • How advanced, remote-working technologies can help companies manage during a prolonged tight labor market – and help expand the available pool of labor
  • How companies can offset the effects of a tightening labor market by delaying retirements, expanding non-traditional work arrangements, and lowering educational requirements for job openings

Who Should Attend: HR professionals involved in the recruitment and retention of talent in their organizations
