What Can Organizations Do About the Ongoing Labor Shortage?

Today’s post comes to us from Workforce Institute Executive Director, Dr. Chris Mullen, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, SPHR and includes a conversation featuring Workforce Institute board member, John Frehse.

The latest video from the great “Leadership in the Labor Shortage” series (also known as “No Suits, No Slides”) has arrived.

Episode six comes to you from Las Vegas and the recent UKG Works conference. In this episode, we get to listen in on a candid 1:1 conversation between Workforce Institute advisory board member John Frehse, senior managing director at Ankura, and Tom Schurman, chief transformation officer at Servicon.

Servicon is a janitorial services company that considers itself “a people company that cleans” and boasts an industry-low 30% turnover rate. You’ll hear how Servicon has navigated the COVID-19 pandemic, and changes in demand, to ultimately end up better for its people and its business. Minor spoiler: it’s all about how you treat your people. It starts with showing appreciation for your current employees and making a human connection.

No matter what industry you’re in, you’ll learn tangible steps you can take right now to improve your company culture, increase employee engagement, and ultimately thrive — despite the pandemic and the ongoing labor shortage.
