Like many industries today, the media world’s business environment is changing more rapidly than ever before. The demands for top-line growth, technological innovation and bottom line results are driving changes throughout the workforce—and creating new opportunities and challenges to engage an increasingly diverse talent pool. At the same time, tight labor conditions have increased performance expectations of employees despite fewer resources to mentor, develop, support and leverage staff across an ever-changing demographic landscape. Join a panel of experts at the AWM Women’s Room @ NAB as they share how they capitalize on creativity and innovation to maximize existing talent and recruit new individuals—all while furthering accelerated business growth.
