It is a mathematical certainty there will not be enough people in the workforce to fill all of the open jobs in America for the next decade. With Baby Boomers retiring at a rate of more than 10,000 per day, companies need to act fast and smart to make sure they attract and retain all the talent they need. There will be winners and losers.


This workshop will focus on zero-cost, process-based, new idea strategies to recruit, retain, and develop great employees for your organization. Will your organization thrive or stagnate? The choice is yours to make.
