General Session
General Session: Workforce Issues on a Global Stage
Grand Ballroom
Monday 03/18/2019 04:05 PM - 05:00 PM Add to calendar
1.50 SHRM PDCs

You may be familiar with the adage “all politics is local.” Yet, increasingly, all politics is global! During this session, a panel of business leaders representing global brands will examine the international reach of people management issues impacting work, workers and the workplace and discuss HR challenges associated with SHRM’s key advocacy areas: workforce development, workplace flexibility and leave, workplace immigration, and workplace equity. 

You’ll hear:

  • How issues first discussed at international meetings, like human trafficking in supply chains, end up on the agendas of Congress and state legislatures.
  • The role SHRM is playing as part of the Global Apprenticeship Network.
  • What workplace issues are transcending national borders in 2019 and beyond.
