Power Sessions October 16th HOW TO SOLVE THE WORKFORCE CRISIS: A LONG OVERDUE INDUSTRY DIALOGUE Missy Henriksen and Valerie Shuford, NALP We can’t solve today’s labor crisis with yesterday’s thinking. It’s time to have a hard, uncomfortable conversation about why we can’t find and keep good workers. Through facilitated conversation, we’ll explore the systemic changes required to attract a more diverse workforce. We’ll talk about how to make minorities feel welcome, and what your female employees want you to know, but can’t tell you. We’ll explain how you can connect with 5.2 million “opportunity workers” and address NALP’s new programs to connect companies with workers. We’ll conclude by providing an overview of the Landscape Management Apprenticeship Program and the potential benefits of working with local workforce boards. If you think you have heard it all, this session will prove you wrong. It is a must-attend for those ready to be drivers of change.
