Las Vegas – The SHRM (Society for the Management of Human Resources) Talent Conference and Exhibition now takes place virtually and in person in Las Vegas at the Caesars Forum, as leaders discuss how to attract, engage and retain top talent in a new world of work.
Managing the best talent is needed more than ever as we face a tsunami of turnover, with more than 40% of American workers (41%) are actively seeking or considering a new job.
Today’s key sessions focus on key recruiting trends for the coming years in a highly competitive landscape, while highlighting the path to inclusive work cultures.
“The two epic imperatives of our time: creating a great culture that can attract, retain, engage and inspire the best people (and win the war for talent), and collaborate and innovate to stay relevant in a changing and disruptive world,” said Stephen MR Covey, New York Times and The Wall Street Journal’s No.1 bestselling author of The speed of trust: the one thing that changes everything.
The SHRM Talent Conference continues tomorrow with a professional sports panel featuring the Executive Vice President and Executive Director of the National Football League, Dasha Smith, and the Director of Human Resources and Inclusion of the National Basketball Association, Oris Stuart, moderated by SHRM CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. This panel will provide a unique platform for conversation on the impact of COVID-19 and social unrest on the NBA and NFL .
“Organizations are eager to hear how seasoned professionals navigate the ever-changing workplace landscape,” Taylor said. “These key NFL and NBA executives offer crucial information while addressing a company’s most valuable asset – talent.”
