WILL YOUR WORKFORCE EMPOWER YOUR ORGANIZATION TO EXIST FIVE YEARS FROM NOW?

Or even one? Don’t answer too quickly.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that by 2011, our economy will need 10 million more workers than will be available. That means your organization must learn to compete—aggressively—for a rapidly dwindling resource: skilled workers. It’s a new reality that must be dealt with by every organization, including yours. Are you ready?

Dr. Tony Zeiss, CEO of the Year for the Association of Community College Trustees, shows you how in Get ’em While They’re Hot.
