The US labor market has become historically tight and business leaders have increased difficulties with recruitment, retention, and rising labor costs that have started to impact corporate profits.

In this webcast, our expert panel of economists feature material from our upcoming report on The Challenges of and Solutions to Labor Shortage, and discuss what companies need to know about labor shortages, as well as deliberate on potential solutions.

Join our expert economists who will first provide their monthly update on the state of the US economy and then reveal:

  • How the tightening of the US labor market has impacted recruitment;
  • Why labor markets are tighter for blue-collar and manual services workers;
  • What the best ways are to deal with recruitment and retention difficulties according to The Conference Board Labor Shortages Solutions Survey;
  • How recruitment has expanded to underrepresented demographic groups.

Who Should Attend: Business executives with an interest in learning more about the state of the US economy and the challenges of and solutions to labor shortages in the US.
