EICN KL: Battling a Tight Talent Market

It’s no secret that workforce growth is slowing in many markets around Asia. The impact of decades of falling birth rates is finally hitting, with companies reporting they have more people retiring than they have coming in. Meanwhile, companies are still trying to grow, and in many cases need new skills in their workforce to make that growth happen. What is the impact of the talent crunch, and what are some things we can do to mitigate its effects, both now and in the long run?For some companies the imperative is to adjust how work gets done so they can change their workforce needs, while others look for new ways to add to their talent pools. Some tech companies are actively recruiting from among e-sports competitors, while other firms are trying to make themselves more attractive to working mothers. How will you make sure you have the talent you need even as it becomes harder to do so?Join us and a panel of your peers and other experts to examine the talent challenges and share ideas for effective solutions. We expect you will leave with some new insights you can put into practice to help you manage your people needs better.
