The United States job market is strong, with the longest streak on record of 102 months of continued job growth as of March 2019. I feel continued optimism about the future. However, many sectors of the economy are now experiencing a talent shortage and struggling to fill open positions. At the same time, we are seeing a generational shift in the workplace. As a result, finding, hiring, and motivating the best and the brightest has become a key challenge for many. As the vice president of business development at a tech company (and one that employs a lot of millennial talent), I’m very conscious of implementing the latest cutting-edge tools in the company’s tech stack and have clearly seen the impact of doing so across the company. It has driven efficiencies and accelerated the careers of our employees.
In this series, you’ll learn about the latest trends in the workforce and the impact tech can have, as well as some best practices to ensure your company effectively attracts and retains top talent.
