Human Capital Shortage: Becoming an Employer of Choice


Human Capital Shortage: Becoming
an Employer of Choice

As job openings continue to exceed hires and the time to fill a job opportunity reaches 40-60 days, the questions you should be asking yourself now are “Why should someone want to work for me?” and “Are the skills we are looking for trainable?”. In today’s market, the right person for your job opportunity is either not actively looking for a new job, does not yet have the refined skills you are looking for, or requires something you do not offer. This is called a gap.

Today, employers are now sitting on the answering side of the interview. We must be prepared to answer, “If I were to work for you, what’s in it for me?”. We must also be willing to change the way we choose to hire; change the way we choose to train; change the way we choose to retain.


Learning Objectives:

  • State of the labor market and its impact on employers’ growth (real cost of turnover & vacancy)
  • Building an employment value proposition “If I were to work for you, what’s in it for me”
  • “Choosing to Hire”: Decreasing time to fill vacant positions with Diversity & Inclusion
  • “Choosing to Train”: Recognizing trainability & when to invest in candidates
  • “Choosing to Retain”: Tailoring employee benefits to the needs & interests of multiple generations
