Breakfast Meeting - Strategies to Address Workforce Retention and Recruiting Challenges
The COVID pandemic has added a new urgency to an already existing complex labor market to recruit and retain workers. This presentation will report and then extend the results from a recently completed Local Rural Roads Board and MnDOT study that explored and examined possible causes and organizational response strategies of the workforce shortage in Minnesota’s transportation industry. Data from other recent research as well as current and emerging trends on human resource planning and practice will be presented. Discussion will focus on appropriate human resource and workforce planning from strategic, financially sustainable, and developmental approaches will be highlighted.
The presenter will be Dr. Ken Bartlett, PhD (University of Minnesota).
