This half-day seminar highlights the latest economic trends for local economies and the state of Montana.
Finding Good Workers
The days of running a help wanted ad in the newspaper and receiving a stack of applications is a distant memory in Montana – and it’s not necessarily due to a strong economy and low unemployment. In today’s knowledge based, social media connected and information rich economy, the rules of engagement between candidates and companies have changed. The economic success of local communities and the entire state depends on making the best match between workers and workplaces. Montana has some advantages in attracting talent, but there are plenty of things we could do better.
Join us for the 2020 Economic Outlook Seminar as we examine the challenge of finding good workers – for every kind of business and organization.
Why Attend EOS 2020?
BBER economists present national, state and local economic forecasts for each seminar city and industry experts will give their outlook for Montana’s important sectors, including tourism, health care, real estate and housing, agriculture, manufacturing, energy and forest products.
EOS 2020 will travel to ten cities across the state and provide a live webcast for other regions. This year we will visit Helena, Great Falls, Missoula, Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Kalispell, Havre, Lewistown and Big Sky, Montana.
Attend almost any gathering of business people and the topic is sure to come up – finding good workers. After more than a decade of economic growth, labor markets across the country and certainly across Montana are tight.
