The COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate parts of the US economy and is yielding historic surges in unemployment claims and drops in consumer confidence. The Conference Board is tackling this unprecedented shock using a scenario-based forecasting approach, which includes projections about the implications for the US labor market.
Join us to examine these scenarios and to explore the following questions:
- How high could US unemployment rise and when might it peak?
- How will COVID-19 impact labor markets in different parts of the country?
- Which industries will be hit next?
- Will this pandemic change the way we work in the future?
Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in the state of the US economy, as well as HR leaders interested in learning about labor markets.
