The Impact of Talent Scarcity on The Future of Work 



In the wake of COVID 19, many people left the workforce due to layoffs, furloughs and/or personal decisions that have created a global talent scarcity challenge. Add to this, wage inflation and increasing economic pressures across major regions of the world. Before the pandemic, many even argued that robots were going to replace workers, but as the last two years have shown us, the number of job openings far exceeds the number of candidates. As organizations grapple with the best ways to address talent scarcity, how can organizations better retain, retrain, redefine, and reward workers as the world realigns itself?


This panel discussion will include new research from Economist Impact regarding a Talent Scarcity/Wage Inflation scenario analysis to be discussed and shared with participants.
