Breakout Session

How the Labor Market could Influence the 2020 Election

The state of the economy matters in election years: Typically a strong economy helps incumbents win re-election. But this year, unemployment is so low that the economy isn’t a top concern for most people, and the US is divided on so many other issues. So what does the labor market mean for the 2020 election.

The labor market—like so much in the U.S. today—is polarized. The gap between rich and poor places is widening, and blue areas face a different set of economic challenges than red areas do. In this session, Indeed’s Chief Economist Jed Kolko will look at the state of the labor market today and how it might affect politics in the 2020 election and beyond.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone interested in the impact of the economy on the 2020 US election

Walk Away With:

  • A better understanding of what’s happening in the labor market and what to watch as November approaches

Roundtable: Building a Best in Class Talent Brand

It’s unavoidable: your consumer and recruitment brands have become linked. Some of the most successful talent programs are built on solid consumer brands. But some companies have a great talent brand, and not the customer recognition. Other organizations are well known to consumers, yet no one knows or understands their talent needs.

In this roundtable, facilitated by Danny Stacy, Senior Recruitment Evangelist at Indeed, you will discuss how you and your peers can focus on an authentic consumer brand, while simultaneously leveraging that brand to build talent pools.

The Workplace of the Future: Is it already here?

Will the workplaces of the future operate without organization charts, management hierarchies, or organizational goals? Maybe. Researcher Frederick Laloux spent three years studying twelve pioneering organizations. He found that they all were all characterized by features like self-managed teams, intuitive reasoning, and decentralized decision making. Dubbed “Teal,” these organizations may give us a glimpse into the workplace of the future.
