We all have struggled with the recruitment and retention of quality employees over the past couple of years. Pre-pandemic, rumbles of baby boomer retirements and truck driver shortages were starting to make an impact. In 2021, many were caught in the “Great Resignation” wave. Losing long-term employees at a time when demand for reliable and qualified employees is at its highest brings workforce challenges. Doing more with less or waiting on Human Resources are no longer palatable options. We have a problem. It is not simply a human resources problem. It is our problem; as a community, we are the best qualified to find solutions. Join this session as we dare to ask the questions of who and how can we solve the workforce shortage problem today and into the future. This will be a very interactive session where we will build off the experience, ideas, and pilot programs of each other.
