Overview : Over the last few years, many companies have become complacent. Finding and keeping good employees has been less difficult during the Great Recession and its aftermath, but trouble is just around the corner. Now, we're moving into a period of intensifying labor shortages and most employers are simply not prepared.

For most organizations, employment during the past couple of years has been manageable. It's easy to contrast that period with the go-go years of the early 2000s when employee turnover was high. Attracting and holding quality workers was a real challenge, driving up costs of recruiting, training, and supervision. That tight labor market will seem like a practice session, compared to what will happen this decade!

Why Should You Attend: Most employers are in big trouble; they don't have a clue what's about to hit them. Some of the danger signs of the impending labor crisis are:
30-40% of employees indicate that as soon as they can, they would like to leave their current jobs. They've checked out psychologically and are just "warming the chairs."
In a recent study, eight out of ten of the employees surveyed said that they plan to leave their employers as soon as they feel more secure about the market. They're "corporate cocooning."
A large percentage of companies have at least one job opening that they are having trouble filling. Already there are many skilled labor shortages, "pockets of the labor crisis" we see today by geography, by industry, and (most especially) by occupation.
