The German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest (GACC Midwest), a nonprofit organization that promotes the expansion of the bilateral trade and investment between Germany and the United States, hosts luncheons on every first Wednesday of the month to learn about and discuss important topics companies face in today’s fast-paced and evolving business environment. For the upcoming Business Luncheon being held on Wednesday, November 1 in Schaumburg, IL, Root3 Marketing and Business Development CEO & Founder Scott Christiansen will be speaking on a topic titled, “Competing for Talent in a High-Tech, High-Growth Market.”
Christiansen works with scaling organizations in a number of high-growth industries to recruit and retain a productive workforce. He will examine the factors influencing the manufacturing skills gap, and share best practices to neutralize them with examples of success both within manufacturing and among industries competing for the same talent.
“Access to the right talent is the primary factor driving competitiveness in today’s manufacturing market,” said Christiansen. “With industry experts predicting a talent shortage of two million workers through 2025, it’s vital that we not only address the obstacles that are impeding recruitment today, but also focus on strategies to develop and encourage the manufacturing workforce of the future.”
Christiansen has more than 20 years’ experience uncovering marketing insights and delivering growth strategies that remove barriers to sale, shorten the sales cycle, and lower the cost per deal. He has extensive experience working with organizations in a variety of industries—including IT and manufacturing—developing go-to-market strategies, helping organizations emerge from the pilot phase, and repositioning companies as their market matures.
