Behind the Curtain: A Real Look at the State of the Workforce 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST Drexel University’s Paul Harrington shares insights into what’s behind the 3 million job vacancy numbers and what is actually happening in the labor market in an interview with NAWB CEO Ron Painter.
The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, from 6:30-7:00 pm ET for radio, 7:00-8:00 pm ET for the Twitter chat.
Last week we talked about how to have a transformative onboarding experience for new hires, and this week we’re talking about the power of workforce culture and continuous talent mobility.
According to 2013 SuccessFactors WFA Benchmarking Data, normal voluntary turnover is 8.9% annually compared with 18.8% voluntary turnover for hires with their first year of employment. That’s more than double.
It’s no wonder companies struggle to retain top talent from the moment the ink is dry on the new hire paperwork. Plus, once onboarded, networked and contributing, every single employee is a perpetual candidate and a growth opportunity for the company at large. In turn, providing a continuous mobility experience to your workforce that includes the flexibility to dial up and down their level of contribution, while ensuring they’re career paths are personalized growth opportunities, are the keys to retaining knowledge and your competitive edge.
Why look outside first when you already have an internal talent community and referral network? You invest a lot in your talent up front and to lose them quickly because of little to no nurturing empowers your competitors, not your company.
Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the power of workforce culture and continuous talent mobility with this week’s guest: Tracey Arnish, SVP of Talent at SAP.
Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, GreatRated of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, GloboForce, SAP/SuccessFactors, PeopleFluent, Red Branch Media and HRmarketer Insight.
Talent for the Future: Upskilling, Lifespan Learning, and Long-Term Positioning
February 20, 2014 ~ 1:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST
How can workforce boards have more impact in meeting the needs of business and industry? At a time when labor supply is high, workforce professionals are uniquely positioned to understand the available talent in their communities as well as where gaps in training and skills exist. Creating conversations between policymakers, economic development, educational providers, and employers to help them understand not only the current landscape, but also to plan what will be needed in the future workforce is one way to leverage existing talent and create programs that lead to upskilled workers, competitive employers, and ultimately, economic growth in our communities. Join NAWB CEO Ron Painter for a fast-paced conversation with Rebekah Kowalski, Vice President of ManpowerGroup’s Global Strategic Workforce Consulting Practice, on Thursday, February 20th at 1:00 PM EST, as part of our Forum 2014 radio show series.
NAWB welcomes again Rebekah as the moderator of an Issue Session on Answering Industry Workforce Needs during Forum 2014 on Sunday, March 30. For more information and to register, visit www.NAWB.com/Forum
