Hard-to-find talent and hard-to-fill jobs are constants in the new world of work. To many of us “The ‘war for talent’ is over—and talent won.”
In our own state, by the year 2040, almost one-quarter of Wisconsin’s population will be 65 or older. The growth in that area is over 95%. While, the growth in the ages 18 to 64 are projected to grow by only 1 percent.
With these elements, how will you find the talent to fill your open roles, complete your projects, and lead your teams?
What if the answer was already part of your organization, sitting at your desks and eating in your lunchrooms?
Our October event “Grow your Talent” will talk about how to cultivate the talent that is already inside your walls and strategies on how to build the bench from within in your own company and team.
