The COVID-19 pandemic and reduced consumption due to social distancing is driving the deepest economic recession since the Great Depression. As consumers remain reluctant to spend and as layoff announcements pick up, US employment will be slow to recover to pre-pandemic levels in the near term.
However, eventually, a vaccine will be found, and the fear of the virus will dissipate. So, how different will the US economy and labor market look five years from now?
By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to answer the following critical questions:
- What are the main COVID-19 related economic trends that will impact the US economy and labor market in the long-term?
- What will be the most disrupted US industries and occupations by 2025?
- How will the growing shift to online everything—from the rise in remote work to growing online purchasing and delivery—affect the demand for labor across occupations and geographies?
- How have company incentives to automate changed during COVID and what are the implications for the post-pandemic labor market?
- As more and more people work from home, what is the long-term impact on spending and labor demand in city centers?
