Talent Management Post Recovery Webinar Set for December 16
BOULDER, CO (December 3, 2009) – On Wednesday, December 16, 2009 from 2:00 p.m. through 3:00 p.m. (MST) Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) will present Talent Management Post Recovery, a live Webinar workshop. Generator Group’s VP, Talent Management, Elaine Lees, will discuss how companies are approaching 2010 to manage the workforce and its related financial costs in ways that enhance prospects for future growth.
There are few people, even among those who count themselves expert, who are willing to make predictions about when the economy will take a significant turn for the better. A recent Business Week issue even offered alternative viewpoints on the same cover – right side up – the economy is getting better, upside down – it's getting worse. But in either case, many experts do agree on one point. Even when the recession has officially ended, it is likely that volatile global economics are going to remain with us well into the next decade or beyond.
Companies today find themselves walking a fine line. They need to manage costs aggressively, but they also need to take actions now that will ensure superior levels of performance as business conditions improve. "This adjustment to a "new normal" will be difficult for many organizations, particularly in the area of talent management." said Ann Obenchain, vice president of member services and marketing for OIA. “Even though the outlook for 2010 is once of cautious optimism, businesses still need now, more than ever, to maximize and energize their workforce."
