"Current Trends in Talent Acquisition," presented by Megan (Meg) Adams, PhD, is Tom Erb, Tallann Resources.

  • Session Description: 

    The talent shortage we are all facing is not short-term or cyclical, and it won’t be solved by traditional recruiting means. Leading labor market analytics firm EMSI has labeled it as the “sansdemic”, meaning “without people”. We are just at the beginning of a global labor crisis that many economists and labor experts believe will last decades. So what can we do to adapt and ensure we are appropriately and consistently staffed?    

    In this session, staffing and recruiting expert Tom Erb will discuss: 

    1.       The current and future state of the labor market, 

    2.       How technology is changing recruiting and what your company should be considering for your recruiting efforts 

    3.       How you can gain a significant competitive advantage by fundamentally changing the way you approach the recruiting function
