Talent in the Balance

Tuesday, June 14 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By St Louis Business Journal
1 Government Dr, 975 N Warson Rd, St. Louis, Missouri 63132


You’ve heard the great resignation, the great migration – we see talent as the great opportunity. Purpose has become the guiding light for employees and provides a chance for businesses to reimagine talent strategy. As a society we need to prepare for 100-year lives. As an employer, we need to understand the trends that longer lives and different life journeys have on talent attraction, retention and workplace benefit programs. In this session, hear from St. Louis business leaders who are successfully navigating the new workforce dynamics.
