"As we recover from the pandemic, labour shortages will become the new normal. Employers will have to find new ways to attract talent and retain their existing workforce. Building capacity through employee engagement and automation will allow organizations to succeed in this new work environment."

Eddie LeMoine

More about this popular topic on employee attraction and retention


Are you ready for the newest shortage and price hike? It's not housing or lumber. The latest deficit will be human capital, which will be widespread and felt by every business sector. This labour shortage will make the old ways of attracting, retaining and inspiring obsolete. Employers will need to find new ways to attract employees, hang on to the ones they have and find ways to build capacity with their existing team. In addition, many employers will see the globe as their recruitment opportunities; you now will have to compete against your local competition for people along with places like New York, the UK, or Brazil. 

Many employers have changed the way they work, and as we come out of the pandemic, employers and employees will look for a new normal. What will that look like for you?
