The Talent Problem, Revisited

Attracting and retaining talent was a significant problem for many organizations before the COVID-19 pandemic, and it continues to be a major issue across most industries. The pandemic complicated matters, of course, by lowering the number of job seekers, expanding the geographic options for remote applicants, and generally altering the expectations of today’s job seekers.

With these COVID complications in mind, Baker Tilly has updated its 2019 e-book, “The talent problem,” to reflect the modern-day environment and the new challenges that businesses face when it comes to finding and retaining talented employees.

Topics include:

  • Candidate-centric recruiting
  • Culture and engagement
  • Valuing expertise
  • Apprenticeships and education
  • Pivoting the workforce
  • Diversity in the workplace
Talent Gap
Organizations continue to struggle to find the right people for the right roles.

Businesses and organizations of all types and sizes have struggled for years to effectively recruit, hire and on-board new employees. Employers are increasingly looking for guidance on how to build a strong employment brand to attract and retain qualified employees.

Employers recognize that job seekers likely have different career expectations than previous generations. Flexible working arrangements and robust career development programs are just as important, perhaps more important, than traditional compensation and benefits.

Baker Tilly professionals work with many types of clients and we consistently hear that a client’s plans for implementing strategic growth plans, adopting effective new technologies, nurturing innovation throughout the organization, or dealing with both perennial and new risks, are often hampered by the inability to find the right talent, or effectively put in place alternatives like automation, to carry out organizational goals.

Keys to cracking the talent problem:

  • Candidate-centric journey to find qualified people
  • Organization culture
  • Expertise focus for new managers
  • Apprenticeship programs
  • Pivoting the workforce
  • Diversity
