LAEDC Better Business Webinar Series:

Confronting Your Most Pressing Staffing Challenges

On June 25, 2013, we held the sixth webinar of  LAEDC’s new Better Business Webinar Series, which focused on how your business can overcome some of its most daunting and immediate staffing challenges (such as turnover of your employees, attracting the right talent, and dealing with cyclical hiring).  Our guest speaker will be Carol Schenk, Regional Director for Southern California & Hawaii at Manpower.

Key Points:

  • Businesses and organizations should develop strategies focused on future hiring to enable HR success.
  • Most frequently, Manpower hears that there is a lack of available candidates with technical competency, hard skills or the experience to do their job.
  • It is imperative that as businesses, we harness technological innovations while enabling individuals to be more agile and innovative.
  • We have to invest in the talent we have and transform their expertise.
  • For companies/organizations just now engaging in workforce planning, you should start with a business plan: where do you expect to be in 3-5 years?  And do you have the talent to get there?  If not, what can you do to ensure you have the talent? Is it developing talent in the people you already have or going out to get it.
