Labor Market Data to Inform Workforce Strategy

Thursday, 1/12; 11:30 am – 1 pm, via Zoom

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic ushered in an acute employment crisis, characterized by high unemployment, low labor force participation, general uncertainty, and innovative leaps. Less than 3 years later, we are now in an environment characterized by labor shortages, low unemployment and inflation. This presentation uses data to inform the story about how we moved from one crisis to another in a short period of time to inform what we might expect to see in the future. 

In this session, we'll explore labor market challenges in the current economy, including data-informed insight about how we got to where we are today.

Learning objectives: 

  • Familiarize ourselves with the local labor market
  • Become aware of available resources  
  • Understand labor market concepts
