The Challenges Ahead to Recruit, Retain and Develop Employees
As our economy struggles to rebound, the country and state are faced with an unforeseen fallout from the pandemic – The Great Resignation. With staffing shortages pervasive across many industries, waves of workers are ready to jump to new jobs or even new careers in the new year, according to people involved in the staffing and human resources fields. This comes in addition to the challenges of developing a workforce prepared to meet the demands of the future.
This summit will feature a panel discussion with top area business leaders, employers and educators from a variety of industries who will provide information and advice for Rhode Island employers faced with challenges to employee recruitment, retention and workforce development. What initiatives are on the table from the state and higher education institutions? How are they handling the mismatch between job creation and workforce talent in the state? And finally, what are companies doing to retain employees?
