Workforce of the Future Upcoming Webinars

Labor Trends and the Economics of Workforce Management
Date: July 19, 2018
Time: 2 p.m. —3 p.m. (EDT)

For the past 18 months, the unemployment rate in the United States has stayed below 5 percent. An increasingly tight labor market is creating recruitment and retention challenges for businesses and beginning to impact plans for future growth. In this webcast, we'll address the economics of workforce management in the tight labor market, including how to offset the challenge of labor shortages by strengthening invaluable assets such as corporate reputation and the company's existing relationship with its employees. This should not only enable you to compete for the best employees in a time of scarcity, but also position your company as an employer of choice, regardless of the status of the labor market.


Talent Recruitment and Retention: What's Trending?
Date: September 20, 2018
Time: 2 p.m. —3 p.m. (EDT)

In a tight labor market and rapidly changing work environment, how can your organization remain competitive in recruiting and retaining talent? This webcast will address the latest trends for executive and employee compensation and benefits, and how to formally evaluate and structure customized plans from an operational and tax perspective. Companies expecting to compete for labor and talent under current economic conditions should first look outward, then inward, to determine how they are perceived in the marketplace by prospective employees, and then make necessary changes. As always, change starts at the top, and companies and their boards should consider specific measures to provide an edge when competing for talent.

Date: November 30, 2017

"The future of work" is suddenly everywhere—but how can organizations prepare for a future with so many unknowns? We are living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work. Automation is changing the skills workers need, while demographic shifts promise a talent shortage, longer lifespans, and other significant changes that will affect the workplace. At a time when business leaders are wrestling with unprecedented disruption, as well as political and societal upheaval, one of the most transformational shifts will be to the way we work. While there are huge organizational, talent, and HR challenges to overcome, the right strategies can set companies on the path for success. During this webinar, hear perspectives from a panel of directors who will explore findings from PwC's recent report, "Workforce of the future: The competing forces shaping 2030", and provide insight into how work is changing, how people think the workplace will evolve, and how this will affect their employment prospects and future working lives.
