Attracting and Retaining Top Talent
The war for talent rages on. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up and retain high-performing impact players and supercharge their growth.
What kind of an organization are you? More importantly, what kind do you want to be in the future?
In this episode, host Alex Chausovsky and his guests, Jay Denton and Dr. Mallory Vachon, discuss the latest labor market developments and offer key insights designed to help business leaders and decision-makers elevate their talent-focused activities and develop labor strategies that work in this candidate-driven market.
