    The clock is ticking.  Baby boomers are preparing to slow down or retire.  Skill deficiencies in the replacement talent pool are increasing.  Globalization and technology are changing the future and nature of work.  As a result, companies are facing unprecedented challenges and looking to HR to lead and manage the change.  Participants attending this presentation will learn:  1) the most significant trends that are changing the nature of work and the workplace; 2) how these trends are challenging and threatening the HR and leadership norms; and 3) how best-in-class companies are responding to recruitment, retention, and leadership challenges.
