Learn how labor shortages are affecting the US economy and corporate profits, which occupations and regions are most likely to be affected, and what mature and emerging economies will face labor market pressures in the future.

In September 2014, The Conference Board warned about labor shortages in the United States and other advanced economies. In the 19 months since then, unemployment rates have continued to decline and qualified workers are becoming hard to find. While a lack of qualified workers is becoming a problem for employers in the United States, not all economies or occupations are feeling the pressure. 

Join us for a webcast series that explores how labor shortages are affecting the US economy and corporate profits, which occupations and regions are most likely to be affected, and what mature and emerging economies will face labor market pressures in the future.
