CPHR AB Online PD Event – Talent Strategies in a Transitioning Economy
Alberta’s businesses and workforces have experienced unprecedented disruption due to an economy that has been in transition since 2014 and now COVID. When the business environment improves, it will fall to human resource professionals to help guide business leaders to make talent decisions that effectively help with the return to more positive levels of performance and profitability.
This webinar has been designed to provide HR professionals with information and insights to help proactively prepare for business recovery. It offers participants methodologies, tools and resources to:
• Leverage transferable skills and experience from other sectors to inform sourcing and recruiting of talent
• Evaluate internal bench strength to support workforce planning and development to meet future skill requirements of organizations
• Skills, qualifications, and experience of Alberta’s untapped talent and using that data to increase the return on recruitment activities
Some of tools, resources and information that will be explored during this webinar can be found at CareerTransitions.ca.
