Skill shortages and a competitive labor market will require HR leaders to remain adaptable when developing talent strategies. Internal talent marketplaces and a responsive talent strategy will be critical for a future-ready organization. Join this session as HR leaders discuss:

  • Diversifying employment models with contingent, gig, and remote workers
  • Planning workforce needs around skills instead of roles
  • Addressing workforce gaps with internal talent mobility
