Where Did All The People Go?

If you have tried to expand your workforce in this post-Covid era, you’ll know that hiring and retaining talent is a challenge. You may have stopped to wonder…where did all the people go? Why can’t we find staff? How can businesses adapt to and prepare for the next few years in the midst of this uncertainty? What do the current employment trends mean for the growth of business – regardless of sector? Everyday, business leaders are asking these questions and more.

On October 27, Mike Jackson, Senior Manager – Workforce Transformation Consumer Lead at Deloitte explored these burning questions and provided insight to help you navigate the current situation and prepare for what is to come. He went over the stats and provided valuable information to help you, as a business leader, to navigate and succeed through this challenging time. Mike took guests through the work that Deloitte has done to understand and identify the trends.
