Workforce Mosaic Summit July 12 to Feature Secretary of Labor
SHRM underwrites National Journal LIVE eventon trends in America’s workforce
WASHINGTON — America’s workforce is being shaped by three converging trends: rapid growth in the non-white population, baby boomers who are staying in the workforce longer, and veterans returning from the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As employers face unique challenges with recruitment, hiring and retention of a highly and technically skilled workforce, understanding this mosaic becomes more important than ever.
The Workforce Mosaic summit will bring together a panel of experts to explore policy solutions to help strengthen the U.S. workforce as its composition evolves.
Hilda Solis, U.S. secretary of labor, will be the keynote speaker for the event on July 12, 2011, to be held at Newseum, Knight Broadcast Studio from 8:30 to 10:45 a.m. The event will be hosted by National Journal and underwritten by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
SHRM recently re-launched weknownext.com, a resource featuring the latest workforce and workplace trends, expert commentary and public policy information — as well as a regularly updated Next blog. Whether it’s analyzing how health care policy changes affect organizations’ bottom lines or discussing the effect that workplace flexibility incentives have on productivity, weknownext.com is Washington’s go-to site for the latest on workforce and workplace issues.
