To tackle the talked-about issue of skills shortage, John Sumser and RiseSmart have partnered to host a free webinar titled, “The Skills Gap: Understanding Talent Shortages and What They Mean.”

There are five scenarios behind the U.S. skills shortage, and each narrative contains both truths and falsehoods. In this webinar, John Sumser takes the audience through each of the five schools of thought:

  1. The offshoring demon ate the job.
  2. The education system has failed.
  3. Companies don't know how to hire.
  4. The problem is entirely regional.
  5. Technology is destroying work as we know it.

Understanding the core drivers of the skills shortage is central to the effective management of any 21st-century business. With a clear understanding of the situation, you can properly plan your hiring process and obtain top talent.

The webinar takes place Tuesday, October 30 at 10:30 a.m. PDT. If you’re interested in learning more about the skills shortage, register for the webinar at: http://go.risesmart.com/JohnSumserWebinar_registration.html.
