Presented By:

The Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce presented the fourth annual Talent Summit on April 21, 2021. Finding and keeping key talent will continue to be a critical mission for employers throughout the Northern Colorado region, made even more complicated with the pandemic and changing trends and laws. This online event provided an opportunity for employers to gain new insights, resources and tools that can create their future workforce.

The keynote presentation featured Andrea Alexander, an Associate Partner with McKinsey & Company. Andrea helps transform large organizations to deliver lasting performance improvements against a backdrop of changing workplace needs and expectations. She leads McKinsey’s thinking on reimagining the workforce, with a focus on integrating virtual and in-person work. McKinsey & Company is a global management consulting firm working with leading organizations across the private, public and social sectors to transform their organizations, embed technology into everything they do, and build enduring capabilities.

The agenda also included other industry leaders who provided perspectives on talent trends, preparing the office for employee return and the changes in human resources in 2021. Attendees also head from regional employers about their response to the pandemic and their strategies of embracing the pivot to run a successful business.
