Compiled By Lisa Hofmann There's talk of war -- at least a war for talented employees. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Hudson Institute will address this and other workforce development issues at the War for Talent -- Winning Strategies Conference to be held Sept. 27-29 at the Marriott Metro Center Hotel in Washington.
