Is your organization under cost pressures or considering down-sizing, right-sizing and/or having layoffs during these turbulent times? Now, more than ever, is the time to ensure that you have the right workforce at the right cost given the current economic conditions, while still positioning the organization to support future business needs.
With all the day-to-day turmoil in our global stock markets, many organizations are struggling to figure out how to react. While there is a justifiable tendency to minimize or even freeze hiring activity during these times, it is the stock market itself that should teach us to respond differently. "Buy low; sell high," brokers tell us. Down markets are a key time to consider buying critical talent assets both to take advantage of labor cost opportunities and to build the talent pipeline for the future. Retention, too, is important in down markets because, once you have lost--through layoffs, etc.--this talent, it may cost more to get these needed skills back when markets improve.
This all sounds reasonable, but how can you afford to buy and retain talent assets during these uncertain times? This webcast will give you some key pointers that will allow you to manage workforce risk and current labor costs, while driving workforce value for the long-term.
