In cities on Amazon’s shortlist for HQ2, traditional companies need to pay attention to their workforce strategy and their talent acquisition strategy, Ami Sarnowski, Chief Innovation Officer at Genesis10, said in an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal recently.
As Amazon enters the final months of its search for a second headquarters, high-tech companies are not the only ones that should be ready for increased competition for talent, Sarnowski said in the article, Non-tech companies should brace for talent poaching in Amazon’s HQ2 city. She is referring to the tight tech labor market and demand for top caliber talent.
HQ2 will also be “a wake-up call” for traditional companies doing business in markets that Amazon is looking to enter, Sarnowski said.
