AGENDA

WESTIN NEW YORK AT TIMES SQUARE,NEW YORK, NY

October 16, 2019

Labor shortages is one of the main trends impacting businesses in the US and many other countries. It is likely to remain a major challenge in the next decade. The Conference Board was one of the first organizations to identify the problem in 2014. Since then we accumulated a large amount of research, knowledge and contacts and generated strong visibility in the business community and media. In September 2019, The Conference Board will release a major report on the topic, in front of the paywall, which is likely to generate more visibility.

Join us for this pre-conference event, where our expert speakers and practitioners will describe the labor shortages problem, but focus on how companies are, or should be, dealing with it.
