    For the first time since WW II, the current lack of available workforce in the US is the single greatest threat to the growth and expansion for American businesses. It is a mathematical certainty that there will not be enough available talent to fill all of the needs of employers over the next decade. There will be winners and losers in this "War for Talent." This talk will focus on proven systematic strategies that companies can use to make sure they are well staffed with amazing people that will allow their organization to grow and thrive.


    Objective 1: Understand the causes of the current shortage of talent and how long it will last

    Objective 2: Understand the three phases of the employment life cycle: Recruitment, Engagement and Development

    Objective 3: Be able to understand whether potential employees are UNWILLING or UNABLE to come to work for you

    Objective 4: Measure the state of any organization's culture by looking at referral hiring tendencies

    Objective 5: Understand how personality type and job fit are inextricably linked and can help with recruiting efforts
