Wednesday, February 5 | 10:00 – 11:00 am PST
HRCI and SHRM Credits Available

The economy continues to create new jobs while unemployment rates remain low both nationally and in California’s major metro markets. Meanwhile, concern is growing about the types of jobs being created and how these occupations will impact the workforce and business risk over the long term.

In our next NELSONtalks, renowned speaker Dr. Robert Eyler will look comprehensively at the economy through the lens of job growth and discuss business risk related to U.S. and California job expansion.

Dr. Eyler’s engaging presentation will cover:

    • How recent job growth impacts labor market risk scenarios
    • How 2020’s election results might affect our economy
    • Job Growth Trend predictions through 2022
    • And more!

The risks associated with today’s emerging job opportunities are real and have far-reaching impact. For example, in California the role of higher education is being both broadened and tested in light of changing workplace trends and the career choices awaiting current and future college graduates.

We look forward to Dr. Eyler’s presentation and hope you will join us February 5!
