Preparing for Tomorrow, Together: Education, Business, Workforce


 In a 2019 Business Confidence Survey published by Georgia CEO, the majority of businesses stated a positive outlook on future business conditions, with 60% expecting growth in the volume of business. The most cited area of concern? The development of the future workforce pipeline, effective hiring methods and the retention of talent.

This luncheon’s panel will discuss the synergistic relationship between regional educational institutions, internship programs and the business community in preparing for tomorrow by developing a local pipeline of workforce-ready individuals.
