The workforce shortage continues to impact businesses of all sizes throughout our nation, across industries. One key part of addressing this crisis requires employers to focus on innovative ways to support and retain employees and tap into talent in their communities.
The number of open jobs far exceed the number of people to fill them — and the pandemic further highlighted the need to address these unprecedented challenges with innovative approaches that close the people-jobs gap.
Building on this summer’s U.S. Chamber event, Workforce: A Call to Action Summit, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation brings you Talent Forward.
This special event will bring together leaders from business, education, and government to discuss how, collectively, we can build people-focused solutions to the workforce crisis that fuel America’s economic recovery.
