Mr. Miceli’s presentation, “Finding and Retaining Employees in a Tight Labor Market” was a key part of the two-day conference which was held in Chicago.

His presentation included a discussion with the attendees, many of whom are second-generation members of family businesses.  He addressed strategies to attract the attention of job-seekers via traditional and non-traditional approaches.

“On one level, the consolidation in our industry does provide some opportunities for talent acquisition,” he said, adding, “But that is only part of the challenge we face. We also need to find ways to retain the talent that we find.”
