Season 2, Episode #12: Lessons From the Leaders: Season 2

In our season two finale, host Russell Evans, along with Jade Towle of CAAT Pension Plan, reflect on the key takeaways.

Russell Evans, VP Comms "Talent is actually at the top of the agenda. This is new. So just having it on the agenda is surprising, but that it's on top of the agenda. So what I'm hearing right now is, is as organizations across different industries, it's impacting their ability to grow. So it's actually impacting the bottom line. It's impacting their plans, business plans on a go forward basis. And secondarily, I think they're also very concerned that the departures that they've been seeing or the lack of ability to attract talent for growth, it's fueling burnout. So the adjustments that they're making I'm seeing very large stay bonuses. I'm seeing very large pay increases. For example in one industry the professional services I'm seeing pay increases 30 to 40%. So companies are feeling it and we're seeing what the reactions are to it. And they're quite significant." - Derek Dobson
