    Not since the advent of the Industrial Revolution has the workplace undergone greater transformation than it has in the last 25 years. Beyond the not insignificant impacts of economics, technology and demographics, the workplace is influenced by the rising power of workers whose demands have gone well beyond traditional concerns about pay and benefits, work/life balance and community outreach. Business leaders today must address new questions relating to ethics, transparency, diversity and inclusion, purpose-driven business initiatives and more. Amid a continuously shrinking pool of talent, employers need new approaches as they face an ever-widening array of challenges in how to effectively recruit, engage and retain the talent they need to grow and prosper. Steeped in more than 20 years of research into the motivations and beliefs of the American workforce, the Emerging Workforce® Study, commissioned by Spherion, offers insights to inform those approaches.

    Takeaways include:

    • Why shifts in where and how work is performed can influence corporate culture, communications and collaboration
    • How to boost the value of an employer brand and create a strategic talent advantage through new approaches in areas such as training and development, community outreach and diversity and inclusion
    • What drives optimal levels of employee engagement and retention
    • What strategies are needed for combatting high levels of turnover expected over the next 12 months
    • How to find and retain skilled talent—the top two challenges of HR leaders today

    Spherion is an approved provider by both SHRM and HR Certification Institute® (HRCI) to grant professional development credit for our Emerging Workforce Study. If your members are part of SHRM and/or HRCI®, they can receive credit for attending our event.
