2021 Hiring Trends: How leaders can prepare for the year ahead

How will leaders meet their hiring and retention goals?  

More than 9 million jobs remain lost from the pandemic, but a pivot in the economy is expected. With rising COVID-19 counts entering 2021, and the promising availability of a vaccine, there are themes to watch regarding talent and location strategies for talent acquisition.

At the forefront of 2021 planning, there are several questions looming like when the pace of hiring will accelerate, and who will see the impact first.

This session will help provide key insights on:

  • What to expect for jobs, talent supply and hiring across the greater Dallas area
  • Recovery timelines for key locations and industries across the U.S.
  • Challenges companies and job candidates will face in 2021
  • Why diversity measures remain at the forefront of planning in 2021

Join Jolene Risch, President of Risch Results and Jay Denton, Senior Vice President of Business Intelligence and Chief Innovation Officer of Think Why as they discuss how leaders can meet their diversity goals in the current market.
