What does the future hold, and are we ready for it? According to Mercer’s 2019 Global Talent Trends Study, nearly three-quarters (73%) of executives predict significant disruption in the next three years, compared to 26% in 2018, and nearly all organizations are taking action to prepare for the future of work.

To remain competitive, manufacturers must stay current with trends and implement new programs and policies to adapt to evolving workforce demands. Offering flexible work options, applying AI in HR strategies, and leveraging automated scheduling technologies are just a few ways manufacturers can stay ahead of the curve.

This webinar will discuss how global talent trends shed light on the expectations of the modern workforce and how manufacturers can utilize technology to support the evolving landscape.

During this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about key global talent trends from Mercer and changing workforce expectations
  • Gain insight into how manufacturers can implement new technologies to respond to current trends
  • Hear from Kellogg Company on how automated scheduling technology has positively impacted plant operations, increased productivity, and employee engagement
