Many companies are dealing with existing talent gaps and projected labour shortages as baby boomers retire and the economy rebounds. This requires recognizing cultural shifts in values and a ‘next generation’ that is more socially-minded and environmentally conscious. To be successful in attracting and retaining these individuals, companies will need a different approach – one that balances engagement, empowerment, and education around fostering the management and leadership skills necessary to address emerging environmental pressures and solve complex social problems. This session will explore different approaches and perspectives on engaging emerging leaders so that companies can more effectively identify and capitalize on innovative opportunities to keep pace with this new generation of socially-minded consumers and workers.
