Senior Vice President – Talent Solutions
2:30pm-3:00pm EDT Building a Viable Workforce Strategy in a Volatile Environment
The manner in which most businesses operate today was probably unimaginable a year ago. Approximately 63% of the global workforce remains deployed remotely and 18% of new job postings do not specify a location. Nearly 20% of Fortune 1000 companies have announced plans to maintain their remote workforce indefinitely through 2020 or beyond. Many companies are struggling to determine how, when, or if they can bring their workforce back on-site. To develop both their short-term and long-term workforce strategies they need to look at their internal and external data. What are their organization’s skill-based requirements and location-based needs? Who can stay remote versus who needs to be on-site? What safety and production measures are in place to ensure continuity?
