‘Where are the Workers?’ Business roundtables to examine labor upheaval
Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley is inviting local employers to participate in two roundtable discussions on hiring and talent retention challenges and share how they’re responding.
“’Where Are the Workers?’ is an important project that will help the Mahoning Valley overcome the challenges in the labor market and put us on a course that will make our area a better place for all,” said Shari Harrell, foundation president.
The foundation is seeking “businesses of all stripes” to participate, according to a news release.
After the discussions, representatives from Team NEO and Fund for Our Economic Future may reach out to participants to share their stories, which can be either attributed to the business or kept anonymous. The results of the research are expected to be published at a later date.
“Our goal is to create an environment for candid conversations that produce actionable insights for employers and practitioners in Northeast Ohio and beyond. A documentarian for the project will take notes at these roundtables, which will inform the end product,” said Bethia Burke, Fund for Our Economic Future president.
