World Affairs Council - Seattle says
What is the most critical resource for businesses to grow and thrive? Within a decade, employers will face a shortfall of some 38-40 million skilled workers. With our interconnected global economy, companies increasingly will be forced to compete globally for the talent they need to innovate and thrive. In today’s landscape, is human capital—talent—the critical resource that has replaced capital as the driver for growth? Join us for a fascinating discussion with Orlando Ashford on how “talentism” may be replacing capitalism, and what this paradigm shift, enabled by technology and networks, would mean to global businesses in greater Seattle.

This event is part of the 2015-2016 Community Programs Local Leaders on Global Issues Series

Seattle is a global brand, known for its innovation and entrepreneurialism. From personal computing to coffee, from how we travel to how we shop, greater Seattle has changed the world. Global challenges—whether in the economy, trade, or politics—are inherently local challenges. Join the World Affairs Council and the World Trade Center Seattle for a new series exploring how Seattle’s business leaders are addressing some of the global challenges they and their peers face.

A hot breakfast will be provided at this event.
