COVID Workforce WebinarEducational Webinar: Michigan’s Post-COVID Workforce

Please join us on Tuesday, June 9th from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. for a Zoom webinar.


Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, companies were struggling to find talent because the unemployment rate was lower than it had been in many years. Now, with a significant number of our workforce filing for unemployment, forecasters are predicting a major surge in hiring once it is safe to resume operations, but there is also a strong possibility for a continuation in the high unemployment rate. This workforce may not be what it was before; open offices turning into hybrid offices, long-term social distancing, etc. How can the economic development community help businesses prepare for what could be a completely different workforce that they must train as well as keep safe?

Moderator: Dan Casey, Chief Executive Officer, Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County
Panelists: Patrick Anderson, Principal and Chief Executive Officer, Anderson Economic Group
Brian Calley
, President, Small Business Association of Michigan

John Walsh, President and Chief Executive Officer, Michigan Manufacturers Association
