Winning the War for Talent - Part 5
Wednesday | October 19, 2022 | 3 pm ET | Register Now

The war for talent is escalating. Some organizations are ill-prepared to handle the challenges of an increasingly complex labor market, shackled by the “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. Others are thriving, armed with analytical insights and surrounded by allies, allowing them to snap up highly performing “impact players” and supercharge their growth. What kind of an organization are you? More importantly, what kind do you want to be in the future?

ECIA Posts Webinar Recording: ‘Workplaces that Work’

ECIA’s GIPC hosted a webinar with guests Brad Wilner and Manny Fitzgerald from commercial real estate services firm CBRE on trends in workplace office space and how companies are adapting to post pandemic employee expectations. This fascinating discussion explored how managers can create workplaces that work for all employees.

The discussion covered the latest data from the firm’s commercial real estate consultancy including employee survey trends, space utilization rates now compared to pre-pandemic levels, hybrid workstyle sharing ratios, and how organizations are blending the physical and virtual worlds using technology.

“The webinar discussion aligns very well with what the GIPC Workplace Disruption group has been tracking in our industry regarding these issues,” commented ECIA Vice President of Industry Practices Don Elario. “The information is very helpful for managers trying to plan for the post-pandemic workforce.”
