Employers today face many challenges in recruiting workers. Among them: (1) there are too few applicants available because birthrates declined globally in the early 2000s; (2) many workers lack sufficient work experience to be appealing to employers; (3) other employers are stiff competitors who are willing to bid up wages for a dwindling number of well-qualified job applicants; (4) applicants lack sufficient technical or interpersonal skills to be appealing to employers; and (5) the nature of the work itself has changed, requiring more proficiency in technological skills. To deal with these problems, employers must grow smarter rather than work harder in their talent acquisition efforts. Traditional methods like posting on job boards or using “help wanted signs” no longer work. Employers must become more savvy, using a range of innovative approaches to capture the top talent before the best people are hired, poached or hijacked by other employers. What are some of those approaches? Hear the answers in this exciting, thought-provoking session.
