PryingÂ myself out of bed to attend early-morning meetingsÂ has become increasingly hard since the advent of a new baby (mine, I think), but I managed to do so todayÂ to attend a discussion about strategies to attract and keep talented workersÂ in today’s economy. When someone raised the question of whatÂ employers are doing toÂ save onÂ health care costs, one woman giggled, which caught everyone’s attention. She then had no choice but to speak:
“Hiring young people,” she said.
“Finally, an honest person,” said the man who sat beside me, who works forÂ a company that helps laid-off workers find new jobs.
