WORKFORCE COMMITTEE SURFACES SERIOUS ISSUES ON REGIONAL TALENT
What if 30 percent of the workforce of your company was eligible to retire today and was “one bad day away from walking out”? That scary problem of the retirement of experienced leaders from companies without a strong bench of incoming workers is being faced by many companies that attended the first meeting of the Bay Area Council’s Workforce of the Future Committee on Tuesday (May 12). Co-Chairs Teresa Briggs, Vice Chair, West Region and San Francisco Managing Partner for Deloitte, and Glenn Shannon, President of Shorenstein Properties, along with panel moderator Kish Rajan, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, led a robust discussion at the multi-sector convening of major Bay Area employers. Attendees explored a range of talent supply and demand issues with particular focus on where regional improvements could impact finding, hiring, training, and retaining the workforce needed for businesses to grow and prosper in the Bay Area.
