Event includes a career fair
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 27 , 2016) — Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Greater Louisville Inc. President Kent Oyler will lead a workforce development conversation during the Louisville Society of Human Resource Management (LSHRM) networking and lunch event on Nov. 3 at the Muhammad Ali Center. The event also will include a career fair.
Topics include the talent shortage facing our economy, current efforts to attract and integrate foreign-born workers and how the human resource professional community can align their work and engage their companies in welcoming them into the workforce.
“Our goal as a city is to do more than keep up with the pace of global change; it’s to leap ahead,” Fischer said. “That includes attracting highly skilled, foreign-born workers.”
In 2015, LSHRM asked 300 HR leaders and businesses to participate in its Talent Alignment Study. They learned that 82 percent of Louisville businesses expect moderate to high growth in the next 3-5 years, yet 81 percent of human resource leaders struggle to find the talent they need today.
