The Future of the Talent Ecosystem in LA County – a Diverse & Inclusive Workforce
With a “tight” labor market, where unemployment is the lowest it’s been in years, business leaders are having difficulty finding and skilled workers to meet their growing demand. The labor shortage is exacerbated by a mass exodus of retiring baby boomers, tougher immigration restrictions, and college graduates who have no skilled training and no interest in applying for technical jobs. Knowing that talent is valuable and scarce, it’s now more important than ever before for businesses to adopt a creative and strategic approach to attracting new talent and retaining the good talent they have.
Talent has become a shared responsibility among businesses and communities. Join us to hear from local leaders who are working to institute strategies to elevate and grow their workforce and brand, resulting in an increased ROI. We’ll explore the Talent Ecosystem with a focus on building a culture of diversity and inclusion and transparency aligned with social best practices that are proven to attract and retain the workforce of today, and tomorrow. We will cover themes including diversity and inclusion, the millennial impact and managing a multi-generational workforce.
Additional details will be announced soon.
