On September 10th from 11:00am to 12:00pm (US eastern time) the RBL Institute will hold a mini forum call on “Sourcing New Talent.”
Within the US, unemployment is currently at its lowest level in fifty years and there are 7.3 million jobs waiting to be filled. According to the Conference Board, other countries such as Germany and Japan, and broader regions like Central and Eastern Europe are also “experiencing historically tight labor markets, making it harder for employers to recruit and retain workers.” Ten thousand Baby Boomers retire every day taking with them decades of accumulated wisdom. Restrictions on immigration across the world have limited the number of people who can meet labor needs in other counties. In addition, technology is radically transforming how we work and creating demand for new skills within the workforce. All of these factors create challenges for companies looking to fill their staffing needs and requires organzations to take innovative new approaches to source talent.
During the call, we will address two questions, upon which participants should be prepared to provide their point of view:
· What are some of the hot/in demand skills your company is looking for and how are you going about sourcing talent with these skills?
· What innovative or new approaches are working for your company in this tight labor market to fill your recruiting needs? Please provide a few specific examples.
PARTICIPANTS: Each RBL Institute member company is allowed to register/nominate ONE person to be the “spokesperson” for this call. Ideal participants include: CHROs, Corporate HR Leadership, Regional HR Leaders, HR Business Partners, Talent Management Professionals, Recruiting Professionals, or other Senior HR Professionals who can share your organization’s efforts in this area.
· If your company would like to participate in this call, a “spokesperson” be identified who will share your organization’s point of view on the questions.
· If you have a spokesperson on the call, you may also have a few “silent listeners.”
· After the call, the RBL Institute will produce a white paper based on the discussion.
· Each spokesperson will have the opportunity to review and edit the draft white paper before a final copy is produced.
· The final copy of the white paper will identify the spokesperson and the company they represent and will be made available to RBL Institute member companies so that those who were unable to join the discussion have a summary of the call.
