Between globalization, technological advances, and demographic shifts the working world is in a constant state of evolution. Due to these continuing challenges, employers must adapt their workplaces to this new economy.

Webinar Highlights

So, how do you differentiate yourself in this new world? This recorded webinar shares tips on the issues to consider when attracting and retaining young and new workers:

  • Ensuring healthy, diverse and respectful work environments
  • A focus on occupational safety and health injuries (workers new to a job are 3 times more likely to be injured in their first month than experienced workers)
  • Resources to manage stressful working conditions
  • Consideration for work-life conflict
  • Training & mentorship programs
  • Purposeful work with a visible career path
