With a historically tight US labor market, employers must find ways to fill their open positions and deal with higher quits rates. As a result, companies are expanding their recruitment efforts by tapping further into demographic groups like women, minorities, older workers, people with disabilities, and individuals with lower education levels.
Join our researchers as they explore:
- In which occupations have companies lowered the entry requirements for job starters to increase the pool of available candidates;
- How the share of women working in blue-collar professions has increased, especially in transportation and material moving occupations; and
- The increased participation of those with disabilities, and how current labor shortages have caused the reverse of a decade-long trend for this particular demographic.
Who Should Attend: Executives, directors, and senior and mid-level managers responsible for Talent Acquisition, Human Capital Analytics, Strategic HR, or other functions related to attracting and retaining workers, as well as CHROs, Chief Talent Officers, and other C-suite members interested in this topic.
