    Presentation Description:

    What is the U.S. Skills Gap and why does it matter to your organization and to our country? In this session, you will learn the answers to those two important questions and explore six HR strategies that can help your organization close its Skills Gap:

    1. Partner with local Workforce Development Boards
    2. Work jointly with educational institutions
    3. Conduct professional development
    4. Establish apprenticeships
    5. Retain your Baby Boomers, and
    6. Hire Veterans, ex-offenders, and disabled workers.

    You will analyze how these strategies can affect your organizational bottom line and ability to compete successfully.
