Qualified workers are becoming harder to find as unemployment rates dip to 4.1 percent and times to fill positions are lengthening. Moreover, the struggle to attract talent is only going to get fiercer as a strong global economy combined with aging populations in mature markets and China will help today's tight labor market become a new normal for the next decade.
Please join this webcast to learn:
- Which mature economies are already experiencing tighter labor market conditions;
- Whether employers are reducing hiring standards;
- How firms are leveraging older workers, remote working, and contingent working to broaden the available talent pool; and
- What factors have muted compensation growth so far and whether to expect a pickup in wages in 2018.
Who Should Attend: Executives in HR or otherwise seeking to learn more about current labor market conditions in the US, Europe, and other mature economies and strategies for operating in tighter labor markets.
