Two out of three CEOs say the lack of the right skills in their workforce is their biggest challenge. Many report that talent scarcity has had a high negative impact on their organization’s ability to meet clients’ needs, and some have even abandoned important strategic initiatives as a result. Even with advancements in sourcing and employer branding, many open jobs today are going unfilled due to the lack of the right talent.
Join Claire Schooley, principal analyst with Forrester Research, for an eye-opening discussion on how some forward-looking organizations have taken steps to solve the talent scarcity dilemma from within. Schooley will discuss the effects of digital disruption, how to successfully find and tap into the hidden exceptional talent already in your organization — your “diamonds in the rough” — and how to most effectively provide them with the tailored developmental experiences that will let them shine in future opportunities.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How the issue of talent scarcity has evolved and how it is having an effect on global business results and growth.
- How business leaders around the globe are providing contextual and pervasive employee development to grow talent from the inside out.
- How to align your organization’s talent profile with hard-to-fill positions and tap into the hidden potential in your workforce.
