How Employers Can Find and Develop a Skilled Workforce
Over the past couple of years, many employees have quit their jobs for a variety of reasons, leaving organizations to handle gaps in both talent and skill. But forward-thinking employers are discovering untapped resources and finding solutions to address staffing needs.
CDW’s Tara Barbieri, vice president of integrated services orchestration, and Mike Kennedy, vice president of technology enablement and strategy, will offer their thoughts on how to use remote work policies to explore previously untapped sources of talent; how to negotiate the increasingly robust social contract between employers and their employees; and how to stay ahead of the next potential disruption.
CDW’s Ellen McRaith, vice president of talent acquisition, will be joined by Justin Avery and Matt Pavliv of Focal Point, a CDW company, to continue the conversation by sharing their insights on recruiting, developing and retaining a skilled workforce.
An Evolving Workforce Will Continue to Present New Challenges
Some of the challenges organizations face with hybrid work aren’t as obvious as others. Zafar Chaudry, senior vice president and chief digital and information officer at Seattle Children’s, will be on hand to discuss his experience with handling a workforce that can sometimes feel isolated when working remotely. And Kim Lear, founder of Inlay Insights, will share her perspective on the generational trends shaping the next era of work.
This event is the second of three planned for this year’s CDW Executive SummIT Series. The first event took place in June and focused on delivering better business outcomes through IT. In October, a third event will provide insights on how to make future IT a reality.
