    WILL THE SANSDEMIC (sans = without/demic = people) EVER END?!

    I wish I had better news. But the talent shortages we’ve experienced over the past several years are set to continue. The demographics in the Northeast are working against us as employers and this has changed the recruitment and retention game for decades to come. Only through bold and innovative solutions will organizations be able to thrive in the talent space. In this session, we’ll discuss the following:

    The numbers behind the talent shortage: What are the underlying factors causing the great sansdemic?

    Effective approaches to a positive candidate experience: What are companies doing to re-tool their recruitment AND onboarding processes?

    Creating a new Employee Experience Model: Once you hire the people, how the heck do you keep them engaged AND productive?

    Top Five Talent Attraction Strategies: What is working today?

    Join us for this interactive program and leave with real take aways for your talent strategy!
