Week of 6-17: Abundance of Jobs

This week:

Falling unemployment numbers accurately reflect at least one trend we’re seeing throughout Central Florida – what appears to be an abundance of jobs waiting to be filled.  What those numbers don’t say is that businesses are struggling to find skilled talent to fill those positions.  The Florida Chamber Foundation held a “Learners to Earners” Summit in Orlando last week to highlight changes in the workforce and promote innovative collaborations to spur true life-long learning.  “Plug and Play Employees” might be too simplistic a way to put it, but businesses need people with the right skills, experiences, and values to rapidly fill openings.

Abundance of Jobs

Looking ahead:
