Using Federal Resources to Recruit, Retain, & Diversify Your Workforce

When:  Nov 5, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)
In this age of diversity and inclusion, employers are unsure of where to look for talent or how to build a pipeline to sustain the constant demands of their growing business. Once they find that talent, they wonder why it’s so hard to retain them. On average, the highest cost in the people department comes from the high attrition rates they face.

At the US DOL, we have several programs that can help employers better recruit, retain and ultimately diversify their workforce. These programs and services are at NO COST to them and they are available nationwide. Roxann Griffith will discuss programs and services that may be of interest to the employers, discuss the unique attributes veterans bring to the table and the demographics that may matter to employers to help them better determine where to focus their efforts and spend their recruiting and training budget.
