“We are in an era where what you know is more important than what you can do, and we are entering an era where in-person social interactions and talent sharing will be a critical part of our global economy. Fortunately, our region is built upon connection and interaction: We’re a place where people can go to share talent, and we will become a place where people go to recruit talent. In 20 years, you’ll see a large and growing ‘talent recruitment industry’ in Southern Nevada. A lot more people will be recruiting from Las Vegas than to Las Vegas—and this industry will make us a critical player in the global economy.”
Tom R. Skancke is the president and CEO of Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance.
