No Ordinary Day: Stemming the Tide of Turnover with Transformative Talent Strategies
This Activity has been PREAPPROVED for SHRM Re-Certification Credits and submitted to HRCI
As we continue to work through the pandemic, and work back toward a normal that feels like it’s just slightly out of reach, there is one thing that has become abundantly clear: something’s changed.
What we used to euphemistically call “The War for Talent” has now taken on a new level of urgency as we use phrases like “Turnover Tsunami” and “The Great Resignation.” Understaffing has become the norm, employee engagement is trending at historical lows and data from the Department of Labor shows workers quitting their jobs.
The data illustrates just how profoundly the pandemic has transformed the dynamics of the labor market and employees’ relationship with work itself.
The employment calculus has changed.
In this session, Jen Lambert, Chief Strategy Officer for TERRA Staffing Group, will share a backdrop of how the employment market has undergone a radical shift and, more importantly, what smart employers are doing to not just adapt, but thrive in this moment.
She will discuss:
- A radical shift from thinking of talent as employees to customers.
- Why employment brand isn’t just a buzzword but an actual business strategy.
- How to transform the workplace into a talent magnet
- Opportunities to mine untapped talent pools
