Has it really been 24 years since McKinsey & Company's Steven Hankin first coined "the war for talent"? Time is flying, but the "war for talent" phrase is just as relevant in 2021 as it was in 1997. Today's employee market is a perfect storm of the COVID-19 pandemic, reimagined business transformations, and team members who had plenty of time to reflect on every facet of their lives and work. This storm has resulted in increased demands for a supply that, in many cases, is either unavailable or unwilling. Continued and ongoing talent shortages in accounting, finance, analytics, supply chain, and technology have been exasperated even as the "available" candidates have re-prioritized how they want to spend their time and how they work.
