Breakout Sessions (2)
Hiring and Retaining Top Talent in a Changing Work Environment
Michelle Jolivet, Founder and CEO, DEI Recruiting and Consulting
Today, we have over 10 million job openings in the US, while only 6 million workers are unemployed. Worker shortages will continue over the next decade as US businesses will add another 11 million job openings.
COVID has changed our work environment permanently with our new hybrid workplace. Business leaders must adjust now to the unique demands of their workforce, or they will be left with a significant labor shortage that will impact their ability to grow or maintain their business. If you continue to approach hiring and developing your team the way you did in the past ten years, you will be left behind without the top talent you need to be successful.
